Jaipur: The Rashtriya Swyam Sevak Sangh (RSS) has denied any involvement of its leader in an alleged graft case registered by the Anti Corruption Bureau of Rajasthan. ‘These kinds of fake allegations are like an attempt of character assassination of a reputed person and all options are open to us to take legal action,’ said RSS in an official release today.

The Anti Corruption Bureau had registered a corruption case against Rajaram Gurjar, husband of the suspended Mayor of Jaipur Grater Municipal Corporation and the representative of a door-to-door garbage collection company BVG. The RSS leader Nibaram was made co-accused in the case as he was allegedly seen in the video clip based on which the case was registered.

The RSS said that many people come to meet Nimbaram and the alleged meeting with the company representative is also one of those courtesy meetings. ‘The video is made by recordings of different occasions and references and against the facts. It was released to create sensation and for political interests. The Nimbaram is ready to cooperate in any kind of investigation as a law-abiding citizen, said RSS in its release.

It is to note that the case was registered based on a video clip in which Rajaram and company representative are allegedly seen engaged in a conversion related Rs 20 crore commission for the payment of due bills of the company in the municipal body. Congress had demanded the arrest of Nimbaram as police have arrested Rajaram and company representative. While BJP had said that targeting RSS will cost Congress dearly.
