Lucknow: Former Madhya Pradesh Chief
Minister Uma Bharti on Wednesday said senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh`s remarks linking RSS with terror activities showed he
was under some pressure.
"I know him since the age of eight years. He belongs
to a very good family and is highly qualified. Personally I
feel he is under some pressure. A person like him cannot give
such a statement," she told reporters here.
When the Congress itself had distanced itself from
Digvijay`s remarks, there was no point in reacting, Bharti,
who was re-inducted into the BJP recently, said.
"His statement is not worth commenting. But, at the
personal level and as his younger sister I have doubts that he
is under some pressure. Otherwise, a wise person does not
speak like this," the firebrand Hindutva leader said.
She said "the RSS is a great social organisation and
its contribution can never be forgotten."
"It is up to the Congress to deliberate what pressure
he (Digvijay) is facing whether it is international or mental
or some psychological disorder," Bharti said.
She said even after this if Congress president Sonia
Gandhi did not remove him from the post of General Secretary,
then this showed her weakness.
"Equating RSS with terror will not cause any harm to
the organisation, but such statements will bolster the morale
of terrorist organisations," the BJP leader said.
"Even a common man will not give such a statement,"
On BJP`s position in Uttar Pradesh, she said the party
had a huge cadre in the state.
