Patna/Jaipur, Oct 24 (PTI) BJP and the RSS today alleged that inclusion of Sangh leader Indresh Kumar's name in the Ajmer blast chargesheet was a "political conspiracy" and accused the Congress of having a hand in it.
"Indresh's name has figured in the chargesheet under a conspiracy. We strongly condemn the political conspiracy hatched by the Congress to defame the nationalist organisation which has been working to safeguard the interests of the nation," BJP vice president kalraj Mishra told reporters in Patna.
The 806-page charge-sheet was filed before a court in Ajmer yesterday by the Rajasthan Anti Terrorism Squad(ATS).
Referring to Union Home Minister P Chidambaram's and Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi's recent statements against the RSS, Mishra said "Indresh has been falsely implicated in the case in order to vindicate the stand of the two leaders."
Senior BJP leader and former party chief Rajnath Singh alleged the Centre had pressurised Rajasthan government to falsely implicate Kumar in the Ajmer blast.
The development smacks of 'political conspiracy' to influence the on-going state assembly polls in Bihar and defame a nationalist organisation like RSS, which also played a vital role during Emergency, Singh told a press conference in Patna.
"It has been strategically timed under the conspiracy to influence the on-going elections in Bihar... Whenever the Congress has made such sinister attempts it has faced the consequences," Singh said claiming the people were determined to return the NDA to power in the state.
Former RSS chief K C Sudershan charged Congress with hatching a conspiracy to defame the Hindu organisation, which is the founthead of the Sangh Parivar.
"It is incorrect that Kumar is somewhere linked with the Ajmer blast or any kind of anti-national activity," he told reporters in Jaipur.
"The truth (that Kumar is not linked with terrorism at all) will come out soon," Sudarshan said.
"It is absolutely wrong to say that Kumar was present at a secret meeting held in a guest house here in 2005 as mentioned in the charge-sheet filed by the Rajasthan ATS," the former RSS Sarsanghsanchalak said.
"These are false allegations," Sudershan said charging the Congress with hatching a conspiracy to establish a wrong fact that Hindu terrorism exists in the country.
