BJP MP Yogi Adityanath funded terror attacks: Bharat Bhai

Bharat Mohanlal Rateshwar alias Bharat bhai who is believed to be the core financer of several blasts has confessed during interrogation that some top RSS and BJP leaders, including BJP MP Yogi Adityanath aided and abetted terror attacks. His confessional statement, which has been accessed by Times Now, a national news channel quotes him as saying, “I and Sunil Joshi went to meet Yogi Adityanath and told him that Aseemanand had sent us. Sunil told Yogi that we have completed several tasks together. If we get some more help in terms of finances, weapons and arms, we can do even better. Yogi told us to come again. After some time Sunil Joshi went to meet Yogi Adityanath again and came back with some explosives. This is what Sunil told me.”

Defending the charges against him, Adityanath said in an interview, “I am a part of RSS but I do not know Sunil Joshi or Bharat Bhai. I am willing to face any probe. If investigating agencies have facts, I welcome any sort of probe. UPA is misusing investigating agencies. The government has given a clean chit to IM, SIMI and Lashkar terrorists in the case but is only targeting parties like the RSS.”

Bharat Bhai in his earlier confessional statement had said that slain Sunil Joshi was the perpetrator of the Ajmer blast in 2007. He has also said that the senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar was the mastermind of Joshi’s murder. Bharat bhai allegedly had given Rs 70000, Rs 50000 and Rs 40000 at various times to Joshi to trigger blasts at Malegoan, Ajmer Sharief and Mecca Masjid. He was arrested by the Rajasthan ATS on 4 February this year from Valsad in Gujarat.
