Lucknow: Terming BSP`s `operation cleanup` to remove members with alleged criminal antecedents as an eyewash, AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday demanded that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati should release the list of people expelled from her party.
"We are happy that Mayawati has decided to ouster
criminals from the BSP, but we also demand that she should
immediately release a list of such persons and details of
cases against them," Singh told reporters here.
He alleged that there were a number of MLAs and MPs in
the BSP government having criminal cases and the party should
also act against them.
"There are some elements in the BSP from whom earlier
Mayawati herself had expressed threat to her life. At least
they should be expelled from the party," he said.
The Congress leader alleged that if Mayawati does not
release a list of expelled workers, it would become clear that
the BSP was only ditching the people.
Congratulating Rajasthan ATS for cracking the Ajmer blast
case, Singh alleged that Devendra Gupta, who has been arrested
recently, was an RSS worker.
"Gupta was close to another senior RSS member Sunil
Joshi, who was an accused in Mhow blast case in MP and was
killed nearly seven months back," he alleged.
He said a thorough probe would bring out a connection in
Malegaon, Sadbhawana Express and Makka Mosque blast cases as
the pattern was same in all these incidents.
"A complete and thorough probe should be done. Abhinav
Bharat was giving training to prepare bombs," the senior
Congress leader alleged.
