Naroda Patiya: Cong slams Modi

The conviction of a former BJP minister and 31 others in the Naroda Patiya riot case gave the Congress another opportunity to slam Chief Minister Narendra Modi and demand his resignation, but the BJP rejected it and downplayed the issue.

“It has been proved now that BJP’s minister and officials were involved in the Gujarat riots. Everything that happened was at the behest of Narendra Modi,” Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh told reporters. Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid also attacked Modi in a veiled manner after a special court in Ahmedabad convicted 32 people, including BJP MLA and former minister Maya Kodnani and Bajrang Dal leader Babu Bajrangi, on charges of murder and conspiracy in the 10-year-old case.
