Cannot rule out RSS involvement in Mumbai blasts: Digvijay

July 20 2011

NEW DELHI/MUMBAI: Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Saturday said the involvement of radical Hindu outfit Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) cannot be ruled out in the serial blasts that rocked Mumbai city. Speaking to media persons in New Delhi, Singh said he still adheres to the allegations made by him, as he has possessed sufficient evidence against the RSS. “I have said that I will not rule out anything. Let the investigative agencies inquire it. Yes, if they want evidences about Sangh’s involvement in terrorist activities, I have got evidences but not in this case. I have already said on my part that I will not rule out anything,” he said.

Meanwhile, the students and teachers in Mumbai lit up candles to express solidarity with the blast victims and their family members. “Actually, it is for the support for the people, who lost their family members and fellow mates. We are not connected with them but through here, this is a way of showing them that we always support them and be with them,” said Jitesh Patel, a student. “Politicians just come up, play their games for four five years and then go away. Proper politicians are nowhere in India. We need proper politicians, who can work to make a better India,” he added.

Sending a strong message to those responsible for Wednesday’s serial blasts in Mumbai, Patel said the militants would not be able to divide the country with such heinous acts, and added that the whole country stands united in times of crises. “After doing this what do these terrorist get. They are trying to divide us, but I do not think so. We are yet united. We will stand together every time. I just want to tell them that they cannot divide us,” said Patel.

“And what about the intelligence agencies and the government? They are doing nothing. After paying tons of tax, this is what we get. No, we need to improve this,” he added. At least 19 persons have died and over 130 others injured in the triple blasts, which took place at Zaveri Bazar, Opera House and Dadar in Mumbai on Wednesday evening.
