Naming RSS worker not politically motivated: Gehlot

Last Updated 26 October 2010, 06:33 IST

"Name of Indresh Kumar, senior RSS leader, could not have been added to the chargesheet without any basis and facts. The Anti-Terrorist Squad has done an independent inquiry into the 2007 Ajmer Dargah blast case and there was no political pressure.

"This is not Gujarat where fake encounters take place and senior officers or ministers go to jail for fabricating cases," Gehlot told reporters here last evening.He said the chargesheet was prepared seven months ago and the ATS has done "a good job to bring out the truth".
He also reacted sharply to the remarks on Jawahar Lal Nehru and Indira Gandhi made by senior RSS leader K C Sudarshan on the issue of Kashmir on Sunday.

"Communal face of the RSS has once again come before the public and Sudarshan is now making baseless statements just to divert public attention," he said in a statement.
"He made highly condemnable remarks against former Prime Ministers Jawahar Lal Nehru and Indira Gandhi which shows how RSS people are frustrated after ATS found their involvement in the bomb blast case," Gehlot said.

Sudarshan in a lecture on Kashmir issue here had said that the Kashmir problem has arisen because of wrong decisions of Nehru.

Sudarshan also said, "If they (Rajasthan ATS) have any evidence, why don't they produce it in court and prove their charges. Just levelling these allegations through the media and a creating a false idea in people's mind is unfair".
