Former Maharashtra CM Ashok Chavan demands ban on Sanatan Sanstha

Mumbai | Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and Congress leader Ashok Chavan today demanded a ban on the right-wing outfit Sanatan Sanstha. Chavan also accused the ruling Devendra Fadnavis led BJP government for being soft on such organisation.

“ATS had recovered 20 bombs and explosives for 50 more bombs. Vaibhav Raut and other 2-3 people from Sanatan Sanstha have been arrested. There is a big controversy behind this to polarise and break secular forces. We have been saying this since a long time that this organisation should be banned. But, somewhere the government is also soft on Sanatan Sanstha. The government should reveal what’s their motive behind the same.” Chavan told media.

Earlier former Union Home Minister P Chidambaram criticised the both the Central as well as Maharashtra government for their stand on the issue. Taking on twitter the Congress leader said,””Hindu, Muslim or any other religion, radicalism is radicalism. Terror is terror. There is no purpose in burying one’s head in the sand.”

He further questioned the BJP government and its political ideologue that whether they will condemn those who are plotting and planning terror attacks?

The Maharashtra Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) on August 10 recovered 20 crude bombs, four electronic detonators, 22 nonelectric detonators and other materials from Nalasopara area of Mumbai. The ATS arrested Vaibhav Raut, a member of Sanatan Sanstha along with 2 other for allegedly storing these materials.
