Mumbai, Sept 22 (UNI) BJP president Rajnath Singh today claimed that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Bajrang Dal were not behind the attacks on places of worship in Karnataka and other states.
Mr Singh, in a brief interaction with reporters after visiting the 2006 train blast victim Amit Singh, who has been in coma for the last two years, said the names of Bajrang Dal have been unnecessarily drawn in these incidents.
He criticised the UPA government for not having any policy against terrorism and not even enacting a stringent law to curb the menace as it was ''interested in protecting its vote bank''.
The ''BJP looks beyond vote bank politics and considers every citizen of the country as a human being first,'' he added.
He admitted that the blasts were taking place where riots had taken place earlier, but said that riots did take place in the country earlier also but at that time nobody resorted to terrorism.
Mr Singh said he would look into the matter of taking ailing train blast victim Amit Singh to Japan, where there is good medical infrastructure to treat such cases. It may be recalled that Mr Advani had given an assurance to his family members on this issue earlier.
