Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sushma Swaraj claimed that there was a deep-rooted conspiracy between the bomb blasts that took place in Karnataka and Gujarat.      


Making this statement at a press conference in New Delhi [Images] on Monday, she said, "Why should the blasts take place in the BJP-ruled states of Karnataka and Gujarat four days after the cash-for-vote scam surfaced.


Swaraj said the investigating agencies must immediately arrest former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh [Images] Digvijay Singh, who alleged that the money offered to the three BJP MPs who figured in the much-talked about sting operation had with withdrawn from the Indore branch of a nationalised bank.


"Only two persons can know from where the money was withdrawn. One who actually withdrew it or the treasury where the money was kept safely. If what Digvijay says is true, then it is a serious matter. And if he is shooting his mouth off, even then he should be hauled for spreading half truths," she said.
