A H Vishwanath

Congress leader and Member of Parliament A H Vishwanath has alleged that Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is behind the bomb explosion in Malleshwaram near the BJP office in Bangalore.

Addressing the media on Thursday, he demanded a CBI probe or a joint investigation by the CBI and CID, into the matter. The investigations should be completed before the elections, he added.

He said that the RSS, which has “an established criminal record” had conspired the blasts to “deviate” the voters’ attention from BJP’s maladministration.

Sympathy tactics


Vishwanath said that the BJP government was not ready to face the elections, and  through the explosion, it was trying to create a sympathy wave.

He alleged that the district administration had failed to take appropriate measures to curb poll code violations. Stating that JD(S) candidate of K R Nagar, Sa Ra Mahesh had violated the model code of conduct during filing nomination, he said that the constituency should be declared as sensitive.

He alleged that Medical Education Minister S A Ramdas had submitted false information in the affidavit about his property. “Ramdas lives in a house worth 15 crore and has 20 vehicles,” he added.

Ramdas, in his affidavit had claimed that he does not any residential building or vehicles, except for a motorcycle.
