BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra today held a press conference where he discussed the explosive letter accessed by Times Now that mentions incriminating details on Congress over their involvement in the Bhima Koregaon violence.

Stating that Congress has been stripped of every clothe of modesty, Sambit Patra informed that the Pune Police, in a press conference earlier today, has confirmed the authenticity of the letter and stated that a political party and some individuals have been named in the letter. Patra also mentioned that the Pune Police have admitted that if required they will interrogate those mentioned here regarding their involvement in the case.

Sambit Patra held out a list of 74 banned organisation presented by the then UPA minister of state RPN Singh in the Lok Sabha on 18 February 2014. The list contains the names of banned organisations in the country that serve as urban front organisations of Naxals and Maoists.

Patra informed that the letter starts with a ‘Lal Johar’ (Laal Salaam) to comrade Rona Wilson and goes ahead to inform him that the higher committee appreciates their efforts to release political prisoners. It is notable here that Rona Wilson is associated with the Committee for Release of Political Prisoners, an organisation named at number 21 in the list of banned terror organisations.

Highlighting the parts of the letter which details the long preparations for the Bhima Koregaon violence and mentions that their comrades have been preparing for 2 months for the Bhima Koregaon violence, Patra alleged that the Bhima Koregaon violence was a carefully orchestrated agitation to create chaos in the state. He also condemned the Maoists for calling the Bhima Koregaon violence as ‘effective’ and expressed shock over their intentions of using the death of a young man as propaganda material. He read out the parts of the letter where it was mentioned that the senior Congress leadership has promised all possible legal and financial help through the conduit ‘Jignesh’.

Patra also mentioned the parts of the letter where it is mentioned that the senior members of CPIM had met Swedish delegates in London. He called out their agenda of involving foreign powers to malign the image of the country abroad. He also cited the recent event where Arundhati Roy was seen speaking to a UK news channel about ‘terrible violence’ in India. He demanded to know that if the collaboration with Maoists to create chaos in the country the opposition alliance the Congress has been talking about.

Patra also mentioned that the letter states that Congress has promised the release of political prisoners like comrade Kobad and comrade Sai (Professor GN Saibaba).

Patra further stated that the letter also mentions about activists in the United Students Democratic Front being mobilised to spread violent agitations in BJP ruled states. the USDF is at number 74 in the list of banned organisations prepared by UPA government.

Sambit Patra lashed out at Congress saying the party have been playing politics over the blood and bones of Dalits. He questioned how did the Congress agree to conspire with the very organisations they had listed as terror fronts and asked if this is the kind of ‘Rakthpaat’ Mallikarjun Kharge has talked about in the parliament.

Condemning Congress for planning to spread anarchy and bloodshed in the country for their political gain, Patra demanded that none other than the Congress President Rahul Gandhi should hold a press conference to answer on the issue.
