New Delhi: The BJP on Tuesday defended senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar and accused ruling Congress of getting his name included in the Ajmer Blast case chargesheet as part of a "conspiracy" to lay grounds for banning the Sangh.

Describing Kumar as "a nationalist", the party said it is ready accept "the fight" and warned of consequences if he or "any" RSS worker is arrested in the case.

"Why (is there a) conspiracy against Indresh Kumar and Sangh? We all are aware of its answer. This is not a first attempt. Congress party, which has so far considered the politics as a medium to enjoy power, has a history of dividing the country for its vote bank politics...," BJP General Secretary J P Nadda charged.

"RSS has witnessed ban on it before. First after assassination of Mahatma Gandhi...during emergency also, they (Congress) tried to put ban on Sangh when it was struggling over basic issues. This is the beginning of (Congress') third attempt," he alleged.

Nadda was addressing a public discussion organised by Delhi Study Group on 'Conspiracy to Defame Indresh and RSS' here. He said Kumar was not only a Pracharak of RSS but also a nationalist who worked for minority community including Muslims too. "He made efforts for uplifting Muslims in Jammu and Kashmir."

The BJP leader charged Congress with "political intolerance" and alleged that Kumar's name was dragged in the Ajmer blast case chargesheet as the ruling party could not "digest" the "desperation" of Muslims for joining hands with "nationalist forces" due to the efforts made by Kumar after Ayodhya verdict.

"After Ayodhya verdict, Indresh had convened a meeting of famous Maulvis and Kazis of the country under the aegis of Muslim Rastravadi Manch. I had not expected that the meeting will last for six hours and Muslims will openly speak against Congress," he said.

"This was the proof of the fact that those (Muslims) whom Congress kept away from mainstream for its vote bank politics, are today desperate to move forward joining hands with nationalist forces. This could not be digested by Congress and so under a conspiracy, this is an attempt to carry forward its vote bank politics," Nadda alleged.

He said party accepts "this fight". "We are offensive. We will bring the things to light."

Addressing the programme, BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, "I would say that they (government) do not have such capacity that they could arrest Indreshji or any worker of the Sangh (in the case). They know what will happen to them if they make any such attempt."
