New Delhi, Oct 23 (UNI) The Congress today said the Hindu Jagran Manch and Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad's alleged links in the recent Malegaon and Modasa blasts showed that the BJP was trying to communally divide the country ahead of the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
''It is a serious concern for the commonman that the main Opposition party was trying to communally divide the polity of the country by being directly involved in disruptive activites,'' Congress spokesman Shakeel Ahmad told reporters.
He said it was for the first time that a political party was involved in disruptive activities.
According to Maharashtra police, the September 29 bomb blasts in Malegaon (Maharsahtra) and Modasa (Gujarat) were allegedly carried out by the Hindu Jagran Manch, an Indore-based Hindu extremist group known to have links with ABPV, the BJP's student wing.
