Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on Sunday accused BJP and RSS of conducting ‘terror training’ camps to spread saffron terrorism in the country.
“Reports have come during investigation that BJP and RSS conduct terror training camps to spread terrorism. Bombs were planted in Samjhauta express, Mecca Masjid and also a blast was carried out in Malegaon.
“We will have to think about it seriously and will have to remain alert,” he said at the AICC meeting here. To a question if it was Hindu terrorism or saffron terrorism, he said, “This is saffron terrorism (that) I have stated.”
Shinde said that infiltration from Pakistan, insurgency in the north east and Naxalism were the main challenges before the country. “Environment is being created against peace but the department will do its complete work,” he said.
The Home Minister said a solution to Naxalism could be reached through initiation of development in the affected areas.
“Facilities will have to be provided to bring peace in Naxal-affected areas,” he said.Congress, secular party
Shinde said that Congress is the only party which follows the fundamental principle of secularism and has given opportunities to several members from dalit, Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribes and minority communities to rise.PTI
