Jaipur: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot Wednesday
termed as "baseless", the allegations made by the BJP and RSS that the government was influencing the Ajmer Dargah blast
case probe.

"This is completely baseless that the government of
Rajasthan was trying to influence the investigation of 2007
Ajmer Dargah blast case under any pressure from 10 Janpath,"
Gehlot told reporters here.

Gehlot said the ruling party at the Centre "never
interferes in such cases".

BJP and the RSS have alleged that inclusion of Sangh
leader Indresh Kumar`s name in the Ajmer blast chargesheet was
a "political conspiracy" and have accused the Congress of
having a hand in framing these charges.

On the ruling party`s influence, Gehlot said "Even
when Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi visit Ranthambore, we are never
asked to treat them like VVIPs. We are informed that they behave like common visitors there".
Gehlot was leaving to Dausa to monitor execution of
revenue campaign which began today across the state.
The CM said the public grievance will be redressed on
the spot at all the Panchayat headquarters in the campaign
which will continue till December 31.
