BJP hits out at Digvijay for remark against RSS

The BJP on Monday attacked him for the statement and accused him of “trying to communalise” the fight against terror. It alleged that the Congress was using him for diversionary tactics as it was under attack over the Mumbai bombings.

“It is very unfortunate that Digvijay Singh is deliberately trying to provoke and seeking to change the entire investigation into the Mumbai serial blasts. It is BJP’s charge that he is deliberately trying to communalise the fight against terror for petty political gains,” BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

Singh had recently said the involvement of the Hindu outfit cannot be ruled out and he possessed sufficient evidence against the RSS. He added “the RSS was spreading terrorism in the country and it has been making bomb factories.”

Demanding an apology from the Congress leadership, Prasad said: “There is a legitimate suspicion to infer that Digvijay Singh is speaking the language of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi....

The intention behind his speaking is to help the government which is getting implicated in scandal after scandal and is not able to shed off its image of being soft on terror.”
