Self-styled god man Asaram, who is to appear before Jodhpur police on August 30 in connection with a case of sexual assault on a minor girl, insinuated that Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are behind the conspiracy to frame him.
“I don’t want to oppose any party but I’ve been told that all of this has been orchestrated by Madam and her son (Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi). So, I said, let them do whatever they are doing,” Asaram Bapu told reporters after coming to Bhopal from Surat.
However, when asked by a reporter if he was directly accusing Sonia Gandhi of playing a part in leveling the accusations, Asaram said: ” No, I don’t accuse anyone. I am just saying what I heard, since you (the media persons) asked me the question.”
He also categorically ruled out that he enjoys support from any political outfit. The septuagenarian disgraced godman reiterated if he were sent to jail, he would start a fast as he did not trust the food that would be served to him as “part of a conspiracy”.
