Mumbai: Maharashtra-based Hindu organisation Sanatan Sanstha today accused political parties of hatching conspiracy to link the outfit to Margao blast that occurred on Diwali eve last year in Goa.

"Political parties, including the ruling Congress in Goa, are trying to malign the image of Sanstha and conspiracy is being hatched to hold the outfit responsible for the blast. In fact, they want to close down our outfit. Do we really get justice from Goa Government?" Sanstha's spokesperson Abhay Vartak asked.

"It is very unfortunate for any organisation which is working for the welfare of Hindus to face such situation," he told reporters here.

The blast had taken place when explosives kept in a scooter went off on a busy street in Margao on Diwali eve last year, killing two persons affiliated to the Sanstha.

Subsequently, Goa Police's Special Investigation Team arrested four accused-- all related to Sanstha.

The spokesperson said MP Shantaram Naik and PWD Minister Churchill Alemao of Goa are now publicly demanding ban on the outfit.

"Sanstha is being punished with baseless allegations, although there is no evidence against it," he said.
