NEW DELHI: Home Minister P Chidambaram on Friday accepted “full responsibility” for the Dantewada massacre of a CRPF contingent by Naxalites and said the “buck stops at my desk”.
“I have been asked directly or indirectly where the buck stops after the attack. The buck stops at my desk,” he said at a CRPF function here.
Chidambaram said after his return here from Dantewada in Chhattisgarh on Wednesday, a day after the massacre of 75 CRPF men and a state policeman in the Naxal strike, he had given it in writing to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that “I accept full responsibility”.
He did not go any further, saying, “Let me not elaborate.”
