Yashwant Shinde, former RSS Pracharak who lives in Mumbai, Maharashtra, has claimed that the 2006 Patbandhare Nagar bomb blasts were done by the RSS. Yashwant Shinde has filed an application in a Nanded court and said that he is ready to be a witness in the case as he has all the information related to the blast. At the same time, Congress chief spokesperson Pawan Kheda and senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh have targeted BJP and RSS regarding this issue. Yashwant Shinde has described himself as an RSS functionary.
Yashwant Shinde has claimed that he has been a member of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal and Rashtriya Swayamsevak since 1995. He claimed that he had attended the training along with Himanshu Panse and 20 others who were killed in the Nanded bomb blasts. Yashwant Shinde has said that he had gone to Nanded several times to meet Himanshu Panse and told him not to do so. Yashwant Shinde has alleged that these blasts were done by RSS only for the victory of BJP.

Let us tell you that on 5 April 2006, there was a bomb blast in a house in Patbandhare Nagar, Nanded. In this, Himanshu Panse and Kondavar were killed while making bombs while many others were injured. Initially the police had said that it was a firecracker explosion, but later it was found that the incident took place during the making of a bomb.
At the same time, Congress’s chief spokesperson Pawan Khera tweeted about this issue and wrote that what can be a bigger breaking news than this. He wrote, “Yashwant Shinde, a pracharak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, has filed an affidavit exposing the horrific information about the anti-national acts of the Sangh. How was a conspiracy hatched to blast the whole country, who were involved in it? What can be bigger breaking news than this?”
Congress leaders and workers started sharing this post as soon as Pawan Khera tweeted and started targeting BJP-RSS. At the same time, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh has also targeted BJP through his tweets.
Digvijay Singh tweeted, “Yashwant Shinde has given the affidavit with utmost courage. The people whose names have been taken by Yashwant Shinde are people of criminal nature. Yashwant’s life may be in danger after this statement. Commissioner of Police Mumbai should immediately make elaborate arrangements for the security of Yashwant.”
