NEW DELHI: RSS on Saturday termed as "baseless" the reports about its chief Mohan Bhagwat being unhappy over former IPS officer Kiran Bedi's entry to BJP and said it was an "evil design" to project a rift between the Sangh and the government.

"News about Dr Bhagwatji disapproving Kiran Bedi's entry to BJP is baseless. Its an evil design to show a rift between RSS & Govt," RSS Prachar Pramukh Manmohan Vaidya said on twitter.

There have been reports of Bhagwat disapproving Bedi's entry into BJP and the party projecting her in a larger frame ahead of Delhi Assembly elections.

Bedi had joined the BJP on Thursday. The former IPS officer and Kejriwal were members of Team Anna who had spearheaded a campaign during the previous UPA regime on bringing Lokpal act.

Bedi had also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of her joining the party and said she was "inspired" by him.
