Godhra riots: Vaghela demands narco test on Modi
Rajkot: Former union textile minister Shankersinh Vaghela on Sunday demanded that Narco Analysis test be conducted on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in connection with 2002 post-Godhra riots.
"The BJP government in the state was adapting double face policy by saying different things to Special Investigation Team (SIT) and Nanavati Commission probing post-Godhra riots," Vaghela told media persons here.
"To find out the truth, narco analysis test should be conducted on Chief Minster Narendra Modi and other ministers and state government officials for failure to control 2002 riots," he said.
SIT was formed on orders of Supreme Court to conduct thorough investigation of some of the post-Godhra riots cases while Nanavati Commission was set up by Modi-led BJP government, Vaghela said, adding that Modi is ready to co-operate with Nanavati commission but has objection on probe by SIT.
Besides, the SIT should make case out of diaries of two IPS officials S Sreekumar and Rahul Sharma who have disclosed truth in their diaries, Vaghela said.
Vaghela, who lost recent Lok Sabha elections to BJP`s Prabhatsinh Chauhan from Panchmahal constituency, has also challenged the poll results in Gujarat High Court.
Vaghela also slammed Modi-led government on failure of implementing prohibition law in the state and said that the law only exists on paper.
"If the prohibition law is existing in Gujarat then state government should ensure its strict implementation. It exists on papers only as of now," he said.
"The state government either should implement the prohibition law strictly or if they wanted to relax the law then they should go to people and seek their mandate during election," he said.
Reacting on state government`s demand of death penalty to bootleggers in the wake of Ahmedabad hooch tragedy that claimed more than 130 lives, Vaghela said, "It is responsibility of the home department and if state government`s demand of death penalty is approved then state home minister, who is responsible for tragedy, should be punished first."
