AAP demands answers from BJP over ISI spy ring busted in Madhya Pradesh
Date 16 Feb 2017
Links between senior BJP officials and ISI are a threat to national security, need to be exposed
ISI infiltration of BJP and RSS organisations poses serious threat to country
The Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday demanded a Supreme Court-monitored probe of the ISI spy ring recently busted by the Madhya Pradesh ATS and Police. The party demanded an independent probe since high-ranking members of the BJP and RSS are suspected to be part of the ISI’s spy cell in Madhya Pradesh. It was not possible to expect an impartial investigation into the matter by CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan as some of the suspects arrested have close ties to both the CM and senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya.
While addressing a press conference on the subject at the national headquarters of the party, National Spokesperson and senior leader of the party Ashutosh said, “The information coming out into the public domain is absolutely shocking. It appears that those issuing certificates of patriotism themselves have a lot to answer for. Even as the BJP and RSS liberally dole out anti-national labels to others, in reality it is them who have links to the ISI, as this Madhya Pradesh case has exposed. Dhruv Saxena, Manish Gandhi and Mohit Aggarwal were active workers of the BJP. Dhruv Saxena was even in charge of Bhopal BJP’s IT/Media Cell. His closeness with the leadership is revealed through several pictures with senior leaders of the party.”
Ashutosh asked four questions to the BJP over this case, “Our first question is, Is the BJP under the control of the ISI? How deeply has the ISI infilitrated BJP and RSS? Number 2 - In this international spy ring, more than 200 people linked the the BJP are said to be involved. The BJP must make their names and identities public. Political pressure is being built by local administration to protect their identities. Number 3 - What is the relationship between Dhruv Saxena and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhana and Kailash Vijayvargiya? And finally, on one of the arrested suspect’s laptop, details of expenses of BJP’s events were found. Is ISI money being used to fund the BJP’s events?”
Delhi Minister Kapil Mishra, also present at the press conference added, “In the context of this newly found link between BJP and the ISI, PM Modi must explain why the ISI was invited to probe the Pathankot attack. The various links between the RSS, BJP and Pakistani intelligence agencies is a serious threat to our country’s security.”
The party demanded that an investigation be launched into this spy ring, fully monitored by the Supreme Court.
