Yogi Adityanath denies financing Ajmer blasts
New Delhi: Controversial BJP MP Yogi Adityanath on Monday denied the allegations of funding the 2007 Ajmer blast. He also denied having any links with Swami Aseemanand, the prime accused in the case.
His denial came after reports claimed that Bharat Bhai, under custody in connection with the blast that left three persons dead, has told his interrogators that the BJP MP from Gorakhpur had helped in arranging finance for the operation.
Adityanath said, “I am not involved in Ajmer blast and ready for any probe or questioning in the case. I have no links with Aseemanand. I don’t even know him.”
He said that the allegations are “motivated” and are being levelled against him by the UPA government for political gains.
"I am a part of RSS but I do not know Sunil Joshi or Bharat Bhai. I am willing to face any probe. If investigating agencies have facts, I welcome any sort of probe. UPA is misusing investigating agencies. The government has given a clean chit to IM, SIMI & Lashkar terrorists in the case but is only targeting parties like the RSS," he told a news channel.
