Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Congress on Sunday asked the Central and state governments to monitor the activities of RSS and ban the "fundamentalist" organisation if its activities could not be controlled.

"I demand from the Centre and state governments to keep an eye on activities of RSS, which is involved in almost all the riots that took place in the country. If activities of
this fundamentalist organisation could not be controlled, it should be banned," UPCC chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi told reporters here.

Commenting on the name of a senior RSS leader figuring in the chargesheet in the 2007 Ajmer blast, Joshi alleged that either RSS, BJP or their offshoots were involved in most of the communal riots.

"The RSS is destroying unit of the country so its activities should remain under scanner," Joshi said while claiming that the organisation was involved in blasts at Mecca Masjid mosque, Jaipur, Samjhauta Express.

"All the commissions constituted to probe riots have found involvement of RSS or its offshoots," she claimed.
