New Delhi: Congress on Saturday accused RSS of
"disturbing communal amity" in the country after the name of
one of its senior leaders figured in the chargesheet against
five accused in the 2007 Ajmer blast.
"The RSS has been consistently working to undermine
and upset the pluralistic ethos of India and disturb communal
amity, which is very essential for progress of any nation. The
latest chargesheet is just a manifestation of its direction
right from the beginning," party spokesperson Manish Tewari
told reporters here.
His reaction came in response to questions regarding
the mention of senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar`s name in the
chargesheet filed by the Rajasthan ATS into the case.
Indresh Kumar, the RSS leader, was present at a
secret meeting held in a Gujarati guest house in Jaipur on
October 31, 2005, in which six other functionaries of the
outfit were also present, the 806-page chargesheet filed
before a court in Ajmer yesterday said.
ATS sources said Indresh has not been made an accused
in the case as further investigation is underway to ascertain
whether he had any links with the blast.
Refuting any involvement in the blast, Kumar said,
"it is a political conspiracy against me. Investigating
agencies have been misused. The present government protects
the traitors and wages a war against patriots. I will fight
this injustice in court".
