Congress: Modi’s stance disturbing

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: The Congress on Monday condemned the Gujarat government’s refusal to cooperate with the investigations being conducted into the Malegaon blasts by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS).

Reacting to reports of Gujarat police stopping ATS from picking up a suspect, party spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan said, “This clearly exposes the double standards and hypocrisy of the Bharatiya Janata Party.”

Further, according to her, it showed a total lack of commitment – especially Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi – in fighting terror.

Stating that the Central and State governments were taking all measures to combat terrorism, Ms. Natarajan said the Modi government’s stance was disturbing.

“Those suspected in terror attacks should be interrogated and punished, and there cannot be different standards for those close to the BJP and others.”

The Congress also expressed shock at the manner in which Madhya Pradesh Tourism Minister Tukoji Rao Pawar “insulted” the Returning Officer for Sonkatch Assembly segment in Dewas district of Madhya Pradesh.
