Advani calls Osama Obama Bin LadenApril 17th, 2009 - 7:03 pm ICT by ANI
Mumbai, Apr 17 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Lal Krishna Advani on Friday uttered the name ‘Obama bin Laden’ instead of ‘Osama bin Laden’.
Addressing a press conference here, Advani said the US has realized that even Al-Qaeda Chief Obama Bin Laden could have his secret funds in Swiss banks for terrorist activities.
“After 9/11 terror attacks, the United States has realized that not just the buccaneers in business but even Obama Bin Laden could also hide his funds in secret havens and use them to bomb the world,” Advani slips tongue calling Osama Obama Bin Laden.
Advani also stressed the need of creating a national consensus on bringing back the Indian money hidden in secret Swiss bank accounts.
“A national consensus should be evolved as it will increase the possibilities of our success. If the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) comes to power then it will vigorously pursue it and will prove it,” he added.
But within minutes, an aide passed on a chit to Advani, after which he corrected himself, saying, “I have been told that I have just made a mistake.” (ANI)
