New Delhi:  Congress today accused RSS of "disturbing communal amity" in the country after the name of one of its senior leaders figured in the chargesheet against five accused in the 2007 Ajmer blast.

"The RSS has been consistently working to undermine and upset the pluralistic ethos of India and disturb communal amity, which is very essential for progress of any nation. The latest chargesheet is just a manifestation of its direction right from the beginning," party spokesperson Manish Tewari told reporters here.

His reaction came in response to questions regarding the mention of senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar's name in the chargesheet filed by the Rajasthan ATS into the case. Indresh Kumar, the RSS leader, was present at a secret meeting held in a Gujarati guest house in Jaipur on October 31, 2005, in which six other functionaries of the outfit were also present, the 806-page chargesheet filed before a court in Ajmer yesterday said.

ATS sources said Indresh has not been made an accused in the case as further investigation is underway to ascertain whether he had any links with the blast.

Refuting any involvement in the blast, Kumar said, "It is a political conspiracy against me. Investigating agencies have been misused. The present government protects the traitors and wages a war against patriots. I will fight this injustice in court".
