New Delhi: Congress on Thursday stepped up attack
on Narendra Modi asserting that the Gujarat Chief Minister has
no moral right to continue in office in the wake of the High
Court judgement upholding appointment of the Lokayukta.

"Morally, Modi has no right to continue and he should
resign," party spokesperson Rashid Alvi told reporters here.

He said that the Gujarat Government approaching the
Supreme Court to challenge the High Court order upholding the
appointment of Justice RA Mehta as the Lokayukta by the
Governor showed it wants to prevent the appointment in any
way.
