BJP Targets Sonia Gandhi, Chidambaramin Ishrat Case
PM & BJP Chief Misleading the Country: Cong
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.
