The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

New Delhi: The BJP has dragged Congress chief So­nia Gandhi into the Ishrat Ja­han con­tro­versy in the wake of new rev­e­la­tions and al­leged that then home min­is­ter P Chi­dambaram was act­ing on her di­rec­tions when he filed a sec­ond af­fi­davit in the case in an at­tempt to cre­ate road­blocks in the way of Naren­dra Modi’s road to be­com­ing prime min­is­ter. “Mr P Chi­dambaram let the na­tion know. Who is she who wrote the con­spir­acy? Be­cause we all know that in the Congress party, dik­tats come from a sin­gu­lar ad­dress. You know the ad­dress. The re­mote con­trol lies with her,” BJP spokesper­son Sam­bit Pa­tra said at a press in­ter­ac­tion. The par ty fur ther charg ed that the Congress took this step as it can­not tol­er­ate Naren­dra Modi and Amit Shah. “Why did you (Chi­dambaram) sup­press it? What was the need? Be­cause you could not tol­er­ate th­ese two per­sons (Modi and Shah). You could not tol­er­ate him as you feared him be­com­ing the PM. You tol­er­ated ter­ror­ists,” Pa­tra said. “P Chi­dambaram’s con­spir­acy has been blown off. The con­spir­acy to elim­i­nate im­por­tant lead­ers from In­dia, con­spir­acy to elim­i­nate Naren­dra Modi, con­spir­acy to fail Amit Shah. The lid has been blown off and you to­day have been caught red handed,” he said. The Congress has ac­cused Modi and Shah of “ob­struct­ing” ju­di­cial process and tak­ing to “patent false­hoods”. “The prime min­is­ter and the BJP pres­i­dent are shame­lessly mis­lead­ing the country and ob­struct­ing ju­di­cial process by block­ing trial of ac­cused in the Ishrat Ja­han fake en­counter case pend­ing in a court in Ahmed­abad, Gu­jarat,” Congress chief spokesman Ran­deep Sur­je­w­ala said. He said Modi and Shah must tell the country the real mo­tive be­hind “des­per­a­tion” to shut down the trial.
