New Delhi: Congress on Friday took a dig at RSS
for its remarks distancing itself from Malegaon blast accused
Colonel Srikant Purohit and Swami Dayanand Pandey saying the
"same people" were earlier saying the two were innocent.
"This statement has come after one year. I want to remind
people of what they had said earlier. Then they were saying
that these people were completely innocent and they were being
"If any organisation and individual is now trying wash
its hands off from them, they should be questioned", party
spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi told reporters.
The party`s reaction came after the RSS asked the Prime
Minister to set up an independent commission to probe an
alleged plot to assassinate its chief Mohan Bhagwat by former
military intelligence officer Purohit and efforts to "malign"
the image of the Sangh.
In a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Sangh general secretary Suresh Joshi said
the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorist Squad has evidence to prove
that Malegaon blast accused Col Purohit and Dayanand Pandey
were simultaneously plotting to eliminate Bhagwat and senior
RSS leader Indresh Kumar.
The four-page letter delivered to the PMO on Friday
stated that the fundamental question which needed to addressed
was, "How could RSS be bracketed with those who were viciously
hostile to it and conspiring to kill its leaders?"
