Vilification against Narendra Modi should stop now

published on April 10, 2012

After the clean chit by the Special Investigation Team to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the 2002 Gulberg Society case the Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday said ten years of vilification against its leader should stop now.

“No evidence against Narendra Modi says the SIT appointed by the Supreme Court. That is a big relief for us. Ten years of vilification campaign must stop,” Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said on Twitter.

BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad stated that though the riots and deaths in Gujarat were unfortunate, Ahsan Jafri’s wife Zakia’s plea that Modi too should be prosecuted has been refuted by the SIT.

The BJP maintained that the riots could not be the bogey for targeting Modi.

Prasad emphasized that the SIT was appointed by the Supreme Court, which had also monitored its investigation into the Gulberg Society case from time to time.

“If media reports that the SIT found no prosecutable evidence against Modi are true, then we are very relieved as an international and national campaign against Modi to somehow frame him for the Gujarat riots was going on for the last ten years,” Prasad said.

“The investigation cannot be continued on manufactured evidence,” he said.

The BJP also said that no riots had taken place in Gujarat in the last ten years and the level of development in the state under Modi’s government had been unprecedented.

Gujarat’s growth story was being discussed globally, Prasad claimed.
