RSS gives training in making bombs: Digvijay

Last updated on: July 25, 2013 16:12 IST

Known for his Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh bashing, Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Thursday alleged that the organisation gives training in the making of bombs. He told reporters that he was saying this on the basis of incidents that had taken place in the state in the past.

Singh said when the BJP was in power in Madhya Pradesh in 1992, a bomb had exploded in the office of the RSS' Seva Bharati and one person was killed in it.

When the case in this connection was reopened after the Congress came to power in 1993, the principal of a saffron-run school in Khargaon was arrested, he said.

The Congress general secretary said after a blast in Mhow in the state in 2004 those arrested had said that they were given training by RSS in bomb making. He said the BJP always supports fundamentalist organisations.
