Former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Ashok Chavan accused the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Maharashtra government of being soft on organisations like Sanatan Sanstha, which, according to him, should be banned.

Vaibhav Raut, a member of the Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti was arrested by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) with two others on August 10 for allegedly storing suspicious material. The ATS also recovered 20 crude bombs, four electronic detonators, 22 nonelectric detonators and other materials from Nala Sopara area of Pune.

Talking about the same, Chavan told ANI, "ATS had recovered 20 bombs and explosives for 50 more bombs. Vaibhav Raut and other 2-3 people from Sanatan Sanstha have been arrested. There is a big controversy behind this to polarise and break secular forces. We have been saying this since a long time that this organisation should be banned. But, somewhere the government is also soft on Sanatan Sanstha. The government should reveal what's their motive behind the same."

Earlier, Congress leader P. Chidambaram also slammed the ruling Chief Minister Deverndra Fadnavis helmed government in Maharashtra for the same.

He asked why the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the BJP were not condemning those who are plotting and planning terror attacks.

"Hindu, Muslim or any other religion, radicalism is radicalism. Terror is terror. There is no purpose in burying one's head in the sand," he tweeted.

Meanwhile, the three people arrested have been sent to police custody till August 18.
