Amit Shah, the union home minister, poked fun at the Congress’s satyagraha over the Enforcement Directorate questioning Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case by claiming that Narendra Modi, as the chief minister of Gujarat, appeared before the special investigation team in connection with the investigation into the post-Godhra violence, but the Bharatiya Janata Party did not use “drama or dharna” while being questioned.
After the Supreme Court rejected the appeal challenging the clean bill of health issued by the SIT to then-Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and numerous others in the 2002 riots, Shah made the comments in an interview with ANI.
Zakia Jafri has submitted the plea. Amit Shah also mentioned the Sohrabuddin Sheikh false encounter case, in which he was later cleared, and claimed that no “dharna” was staged.
“PM Modi provided the best illustration of how the Constitution ought to be upheld by all political figures in a democracy. Modiji was also questioned, but there was no outcry and no national rally of (BJP) members in support of Modiji. With the law, we complied. I also was detained. There was no demonstration or protest “stated he.
“PM Modi has received clean checks before. Additionally, the Nanavati Commission gave a perfect score. However, the SIT was created. And Modi did not perform before the SIT; instead, he requested that every village show its support by calling MLAs, MPs, and former MPs to hold dharnas “During Rahul Gandhi’s questioning by the Enforcement Directorate in the National Herald case, Shah added a jab at the Congress party’s decision to hold protests in the nation’s capital.
