The controversy over journalist Ved Pratap Vaidik’s meeting with 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed refuses to die down with the Congress on Wednesday dubbing him as an “RSS volunteer beyond any doubt” and seeking to know the “hidden agenda” behind the meet.

“Vaidik is an RSS volunteer beyond any doubt… His entire family at Indore in Madhya Pradesh is known to be an RSS family. His father was among the prominent workers of the erstwhile Jansangh in Madhya Bharat,” party spokesperson Shobha Oza told reporters.

Oza, who herself hails from Madhya Pradesh, said, “Vaidik is an RSS volunteer beyond any doubt and to deny it is a white lie.”

Wondering as to who was instrumental in ensuring Vaidik’s  meeting with Hafiz, she said that even Pakistani journalists can’t meet the terror mastermind who carries a reward of USD 10 million.

She said that the record of calls of Vaidik needed to be thoroughly probed as also it needed to be investigated whom he had met before and after the Pakistan visit.

Facing all-round attack, government has already disapproved of and condemned the meeting and said it has sought a report from the Indian High Commission in Islamabad about whether it was aware of this.

      It looks like Ozawa and Congress are desperate and frustrated people after debacle in Loksabha election. They are obsessed with RSS and BJP. Vaidik was RSS or not is not point. He went to Pak with Congress Mani shankar Aiyar a lover and corrupt Khurshid. Both them pushed him and framed into meeting with the terrorist and ISI isted the meeting and this fellow fell into ISI trap.
