Cannot trust BJP, VHP, RSS on Ayodhya: Digvijay

Monday, September 20, 2010

NEW DELHI - Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh Monday said he cannot trust the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad on the Ayodhya dispute as “they could do anything”.

He said the Congress made a mistake in 1992 by believing the affidavits filed by Sangh parivar organisations. The Babri mosque was demolished Dec 6, 1992 by Hindu mobs who had gathered at the spot.

“I cannot trust BJP, RSS, VHP. In 1992, we made a mistake by believing their affidavit,” said Singh, who is Congress general secretary in charge of Uttar Pradesh.

The Congress leader said he had information that Sangh parivar organisations were making some plans. The Lucknow bench of Allahbad High Court is expected to give its verdict in the title suits relating to the Ayodhya dispute on Sep 24.

He said the party has asked its MPs and legislators in Uttar Pradesh to remain in their constituencies on Sep 24 and work for communal harmony.

Singh alleged that posters had been put up by Hindu fundamentalist organisations in Bhopal and Indore to recruit people.

He said he had told Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan during a telephonic conversation that the state government should control “overzealous” workers in the current scenario.
