Why did Rajnath meet Malegaon blast accused in jail: Digvijaya
This came after Rajnath Singh condemned Shinde's statement on Hindu terror and announced a nationwide protest from Thursday.

New Delhi: As the new BJP President Rajnath Singh slammed Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde for his remarks on terror, Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh hit back at him asking why he met Malegaon blast accused Sadhvi Pragya in jail. "Rajnath Singh ji must first answer why he went to meet Lt Colonel Prasad Purohit and Sadhvi Pragya in jail ," Digvijaya Singh said.

This came after Rajnath Singh condemned Shinde's statement on Hindu terror and announced a nationwide protest from Thursday. Addressing the AICC meeting in Jaipur on Sunday, Shinde had alleged that the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh were running training camps to promote Hindu terrorism. "We have got an investigation report that be it RSS or BJP, their training camps are promoting Hindu terrorism. We are keeping a strict vigil on all this," he had said adding that, "Whether it is Samjhauta blast or Mecca Masjid blast or Malegaon blast, they plant bombs and blame it on the minorities."

The Union Minister, however, was immediately made to explain his statement by the Congress leadership. Defending his remarks, Shinde had said that he was referring to Saffron terrorism which has already been talked about by media at various occasions.
