Patna: Senior BJP leader and former party chief Rajnath Singh on Sunday accused the Centre of pressurising the Rajasthan government to falsely implicate RSS leader Indresh Kumar in the Ajmer blast case.

The development smacks of 'political conspiracy' to influence the ongoing Assembly polls in Bihar and defame a nationalist organisation like RSS, which also played a vital role during Emergency, he told a press conference here.

"It has been strategically timed under the conspiracy to influence the ongoing elections in Bihar... Whenever the Congress has made such sinister attempts it has faced the consequences," he said claiming the people were determined to give NDA another chance in the state.

Referring to the demand by Rahul Gandhi for banning RSS, Singh said a similar attempt was made in 1992 and subsequently BJP had defeated Congress and formed the government at the Centre.

"Before taking any action against RSS, Congress must take into consideration that Atal Bihari Vajpayee, L K Advani and a person like me are all actively attached to RSS.

"RSS is an organisation which is averse to doing politics over religions and also against causing any harm to places of worship in India," he said.

Singh also accused RJD, LJP and Congress of being 'hand in glove'.

"Both RJD and LJP are still supporting the UPA government led by Congress ... They are equally responsible for sky rocketing of prices of essential commodities," he alleged.
