New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi, vice-president Rahul Gandhi and party leader P Chidambaram should be charged with perjury for implicating that Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat perpetrated ‘so-called Hindu terror', said BJP Subramanian Swamy on Saturday.
"The government should set up something to register an FIR and make Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and P Chidambaram as accused in a conspiracy to subvert the country and falsification of information, tantamounting to perjury (sic)," Swamy told ANI.
Swamy said he was already aware of the conspiracy hatched by the UPA government to implicate Bhagwat.
Swamy further alleged that Congress introduced the term ‘Hindu terror’ to implicate Bhagwat.
"They (Congress) did a somersault here and started a new FIR citing so-called Hindu terror. The whole objective was to somehow implicate Mohan Bhagwat because he is the head of the largest voluntary organisation of the world, and it is the backbone of the BJP, as far as workers are concerned,” he claimed.
“Therefore, this cultural organisation was sought to be defamed that during elections, people out of fright, would decide not to vote for the BJP and give it to UPA. But the gamble failed, because by the time they could get to summon and subject Bhagwat to third-degree methods, the police (NIA level) said they wanted further proof and so it was delayed. So when the elections came, we won," Swamy said.
Swamy further said that the same approach was adopted by the Congress in Mahatma Gandhi's murder, but they failed there as well.
“They used the media control they had to propagate against the RSS. Now, we won't allow them to do this. They should be brought to book," he said.
Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi also said members of such nationalist parties were there in the hit-list since the beginning. However, the forces who tried to malign them were exposed in the past and will be exposed now as well.
As per reports, after the extreme violence in Ajmer and Malegaon blast, the UPA government had laid stress on the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to implicate Bhagwat as per their 'Hindu terror' theory.
