RSS link in terror acts

New Delhi, Dec 18 (IBNS) Stung by the Opposition over the WikiLeaks cables that caught Rahul Gandhi on the wrong foot over Hindu terror, the Congress on Saturday launched an offensive on the saffron group alleging RSS connection in acts of terror.

Speaking to reporters on the first day of the three-day Congress plenary session at Burari here, senior leader Digvijay Singh said RSS pracharak Sunil Joshi who was found murdered sometime back was involved in many acts of terror.

Congress source were quoted saying in media that the party during its ongoing plenary session is likely to adopt resolutions on the issue and ask the government to probe “terror links of the RSS”.

"Sunil Joshi, an RSS pracharak of Devas [Madhya Pradesh] - who was involved in the Nimama murder case in Indore district, involved in Mau bomb blast, involved in Mecca Masjid blast, was involved in Ajmer Sharif Dargah bomb blast, was involved in Samjhauta Express blast - was murdered in Devas sometime back,” Digvijay Singh said.

“At that time only I had demanded a CBI inquiry into the murder of Sunil Joshi because he knew too much.

“It is extremely intriguing that the Madhya Pradesh government headed by the BJP refused to probe against him at that time,” he said, adding that Joshi knew too much but the case was closed citing insufficient evidence.

“The credit goes to the National Investigative Agency (NIA) and the ATS (Rajasthan Police) who got hold of Harshad Solanki - who has now owned up and named two persons from Madhya Pradesh and two other persons from Gujarat - Mr Katare and Mr Parmar from Devas and Indore and two from Baroda. All of them are RSS activists," Singh said.

Meanwhile, besides the issue of right wing terrorism, the draft resolutions at the plenary is likely to adopt that Congress is the only pan-India national party with pan-India existence.

Party president Sonia Gandhi on Saturday chaired the meeting of the Subjects Committee that would finalise the resolutions to be adopted.
