Communists and church are defaming us: ABVP

October 25, 2008 01:42 IST

Strongly protesting against two news channels for their reports about Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad's (ABVP) alleged involvement in the Malegaon and Modasa blasts, the BJP's student wing today termed it a "conspiracy of the Communists and the Church to defame it".

Challenging the channels to prove reports that three persons, arrested by Maharashtra's Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) for Malegaon blast, had links with the ABVP, Madhya Bharat State Secretary Hitesh Shukla said they were only interested in dragging the student organisation's name in blast cases.

In a statement here, he said none of them was associated with ABVP and even ATS has said the same thing.

Shukla alleged that the relation of these channels with the Church was a known fact. They are the same people who, on the basis of alleged Naxal Arun Pareira's narco-analysis tests, had said that Naxals get financial help from ABVP, he said.

The ABVP leader said Maharashtra police had written to them clarifying that no such facts came to light during narco-test of Pareira.
