New Delhi, April 25 (IANS) Political parties who had been misleading the nation on the issue of the Bofors gun deal should apologise, the Congress said Wednesday after former Swedish police chief Sten Lindstrom gave a clean chit to the late Rajiv Gandhi in the bribery sandal


"The statement of former Swedish police officer has given a clean chit to former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi," said Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi.
