RSS in US terrorist list: Congress

July 23, 2005 18:19 IST

Claiming that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh was included in a list of 38 terrorist outfits in an United States website, Madhya Pradesh Congress on Saturday demanded a high-level probe into it and said the party would raise the matter in the State assembly.

The monsoon session of the assembly is to begin on July 25.

"The website of a research centre in the US shows a list of terrorist outfits active in India. Besides the Lashkar-e-Tayiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Jamat-e-lslami and the United Liberation Front of Asom, the list also includes the name of the RSS," leader of the opposition in the state assembly, Jamuna Devi told reporters in Bhopal.

Since Chief Minister Babu Lal Gaur takes part in the activities of the RSS, the Congress would raise the issue in the assembly, she said.

Devi added that she had also written a letter to Governor Balram Jakhar seeking a thorough probe into the activities of the RSS and the people associated with it in the state.

Congress Legislature Party spokesman Sajjan Singh Verma demanded the resignation of Gaur for his alleged links with the RSS.

Devi and Verma accused the Bharatiya Janata Party, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal and RSS of spreading communalism in the state for 'political gains'. Apart from the Dharaji tragedy, they said the government 'failing' to provide relief to the flood-hit and scandals pertaining to land, pension and mining lease would be also raised during the session.
