BJP hits out at Chidambaram for using the term 'Saffron Terror'

New Delhi: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Friday took objection to BJP chief Nitin Gadkari's take on saffron terrorism saying, he should first explain why RSS activists are involved in terrorist activities.

"Gadkari can go on and on to say that saffron terrorism does not exist but he should first tell us why RSS activists take part in terrorist activities?" Singh said.

"His (Gadkari's) remarks will serve no purpose", he added.

The BJP leader at a press conference yesterday had said that there was no such thing as saffron terrorism and claimed that for the Congress, secularism only meant appeasement of minorities.

 

Gadkakri was reacting on a comment made by Home Minister P Chidambaram who while addressing senior police officers' conference in New Delhi said, there is recently uncovered phenomenon of saffron terrorism that has been implicated in many bomb blasts of the past.

 

Meanwhile, Rajya Sabha today adjourned till noon after BJP and Shiv Sena MPs led by opposition leader Arun Jaitly reportedly disrupted the proceeding of the house over Chidamabarm's remarks, saying the minister was talking about "an imaginary phenomenon of terror" that does not exist.

 

BJP and Shiv Sena MPs were also critical of Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) leader Ram Vilas Paswan who said, Chidambaram had made the remarks as a responsible minister and the phenomenon of "saffron terror" existed and demanded a ban on the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Bajrang Dal.
