The Congress and NCP Thursday set aside their differences to unanimously demand a CBI probe into Swami Aseemanada’s allegation that RSS chief Mohan Bhawat had a role to play in the Samjhauta Express blast and other terror attacks. Leading the pack, Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said: “If Assemananda is confessing about the RSS chief’s role in Samjhauta Express blast or Hindu terror, it must be true.”

National NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik demanded a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation or the National Investigation Agency to ascertain the facts. Assemananda, a former RSS activist accused of planning several terror attacks across the country, reportedly in an interview to Caravan Magazine, said RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat was informed about the terror plans targeting the Muslim community, which had his approval. MPCC chief Manikrao Thakre too demanded a CBI probe.

State BJP chief Devendra Fadnavis, meanwhile, accused the ruling combine of making “wild allegations”. “The NIA has already investigated the matter and dismissed the charge against RSS chief as rubbish,” he said.

        RSS will defend its top boss and will blame Congress for CARVAN magazine's disclosure but how will it challenge the Audio evidence released by the magazine.

            This is not fair play. If your team is weak, accept the reality. Don't try to encroach in your opposite team

                        इसमें कोई दो राय नहीं कि संघ भाजपा को अपने स्वार्थ के लिए इस्तेमाल रही है. संघ को अपनी धाक जमाने के लिए महज़ भाजपा के कंधे पर बंदूक रख अपनी मनमानी कर रही है.

                                        CBI must investigate Mohan Bhagawt's role in Samjouta express and Ajmer Dargah blasts. on the other side, if RSS feels that its boss has done nothing wrong then it should file defamation case against the magazine..

                                            For this saffron organaization, Congress is mother of all ills that prevail in India. But alas, very few people believe in RSS's tales.
