Home minister Sushilkumar Shinde is again in the eye of storm for his unwarranted comment that he had evidence that BJP and RSS had run Hindu terror camps.
“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,” Shinde said at the Congress conclave in Jaipur.
The BJP later attacked Shinde and demanded an apology from Congress president Sonia Gandhi. Finding himself at the centre of the controversy, Shinde later told reporters that he had referred to “saffron terrorism,” which was nothing new and appeared in newspapers several times in the past.
Is it yet another quotables quote from Shinde who has been in the eye of storm on several earlier occasions for his unwarranted comments?
