I have two columns...form comments and delete comments.these columns are coming from workflows and multiple line text columns.I need to concatenate these two columns and create one column comments.we can not concatenate using OOB since these columns are multiple line text columns and are not available in Insert Column box.

Ah, you want to create new column also. This is the code:
        private static void ConcatFields()
        {
            using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://localhost"))
            {
                using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
                {
                    // Build a query.
                    SPQuery query = new SPQuery();
                    query.Query = string.Concat(
                                   "<Where><Eq>",
                                      "<FieldRef Name='ID'/>",
                                      "<Value Type='Number'>1</Value>",
                                   "</Eq></Where>");

                    query.ViewFields = string.Concat(
                                        "<FieldRef Name='_Comments' />",
                                        "<FieldRef Name='DelComments' />");

                    // Get data from a list.
                    const string listUrl = "/lists/CustomList";
                    SPList list = web.GetList(listUrl);
                    SPListItemCollection items = list.GetItems(query);
                    SPListItem item = items[0];

                    list.Fields.Add("ConComments", SPFieldType.Note, false);
                    list.Update();

                    item["ConComments"] = string.Concat(item["_Comments"], item["DelComments"]);
                    item.Update();
                 }
            }
            System.Console.ReadLine();
        }
