Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh today said Rahul Gandhi did not do any wrong by comparing RSS with banned terror outfit SIMI.

"When Rahul compared the two organisations he had merely said that they had almost same ideologies," Singh told reporters here.

He said there were a number of instances of RSS activists being involved in terrorist activities like blasts at various places in the country.

The first instance of making bombs by Hindu right wing organisation Vishwa Hindu Parishad had come to light in Neemuch in 1992 when BJP was in power in Madhya Pradesh.

Singh said when he was Chief Minister of the state, he had presented proof of involvement of SIMI and Bajrang Dal in terrorist activities to the then BJP-led NDA government.

"The government had accepted the proofs about SIMI but did not do anything about the proofs given with regard to Bajrang Dal," he said.
