Shourie re-opens Kandahar wounds, questions Advani's version in book
New Delhi The Kandahar issue is back to haunt senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L K Advani. And now it's Arun Shourie, who has sought to reopen the old wounds of the hijack episode in his latest book that was released on Saturday.

In his book Shourie questions Advani's take on the hijack episode by writing, "Jaswant Singh disclosed facts that put Mr Advani's account in question. Brajesh Mishra set out further facts that nailed Mr Advani's version even deeper.

Yashwant Sinha endorsed what Mishra stated. With these statements, four members of the Cabinet Committee on Security, excluding Vajpayee, all four other than Advaniji had called Mr Advani's version in question".
