Mid Day - - NATION -

NEW DELHI: The Congress de­manded sack­ing of Gu­jarat CM Vi­jay Ru­pani and im­po­si­tion of Pres­i­dent’s rule in the state, claim­ing that law and or­der has col­lapsed there with large-scale at­tacks on Hindi-speak­ing mi­grants. The Congress also asked PM Naren­dra Modi to speak up on the vi­o­lence in the state and apol­o­gise tak­ing moral re­spon­si­bil­ity for what it called acts of the saf­fron party lead­ers.

Congress spokesper­son Shak­tis­inh Go­hil al­leged the BJP lead­ers were part of a pre­con­ceived con­spir­acy to fuel at­tacks against peo­ple from Hindi-belt states liv­ing in Gu­jarat in the af­ter­math of the al­leged rape of a 14-mon­thold girl in Sabarkan­tha dis­trict.
