BJP in the wake of the acquittal order blamed the Congress government for weak lobbying in the case.

"We have met family members of blast victims. We will make a special package for them if BJP comes to power and will try for their rehabilitation," Rathore told reporters here.

Asked whether BJP will take up the matter in the Supreme Court, Rathore said the party has made a strategy and talks on it are on.

"It is the duty of the state government that they should appeal. But if we victims appeal to us, then we too will knock on the doors of the Supreme Court and hire top lawyers," he said.

Rajasthan High Court had on March 29 acquitted four accused who were sentenced to death by a special court in 2019.

The high court also pulled up the probe agency for poor investigation.
