New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh today disapproved of ministers and BJP leaders making controversial statements, saying extra caution has to be taken by those who are in power.

"We can't get away by saying that statements were misinterpreted or twisted. We need to be extra careful while putting forth our views," he told reporters here in the wake of controversy over statements by Union Minister VK Singh and Kiren Rijiju on two separate issues.

"I feel that as leaders of the ruling party, we

must all be extra cautious while making any statement," he said.

Singh found himself at the centre of a row over comments that the Centre cannot be blamed if somebody throws a stone at a dog in connection with the Faridabad Dalit burning incident in which two children were killed.

Rijiju, the Minister of State for Home, had said a few days back that he agreed with a former Lt Governor of Delhi who had once remarked that north Indians "take pride in and enjoy" breaking rules.
