MADURAI: Members of the ‘Desiya League' (Tamil Nadu unit) have demanded the resignation of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
Speaking to reporters here on Monday, its State president M. Basheer Ahamad said that following a CBI probe into the alleged fake encounter killing reported in Gujarat, the Chief Minister should step down.
The BJP government and its leaders had harassed and humiliated Muslims in that State. There could not be two different opinions in this regard.
The CBI officials had recently arrested a Cabinet colleague of Mr. Modi and detained him. Under such circumstances, the Chief Minister should step down and give his submissions to the investigating agency. Instead of cooperating with the probe, the BJP leaders were blaming that the Congress was politicising the issue. To bring out the truth, the Centre should deal with the issue sternly as the minorities felt insecure.
Replying to a question, Mr. Ahamad said that with Assembly elections round the corner in Tamil Nadu, the League would continue to support the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam front.
The League, he said, would press the State government to solve the Periyar dam row as it affected many southern districts. There were apprehensions among farmers that if the issue remained unsolved, many districts would experience water crisis very soon. In the larger interest of people, the government should find amicable ways to settle the issue with Kerala government.
