Ahmedabad: Hitting out at the Centre and the CBI, Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said the agency`s plea to the Supreme Court to shift the Sohrabuddin case outside Gujarat was an insult to the judicial system of the state.
He also asked the Centre whether it considered Gujarat as a part of "enemy country".
"Do you not consider the state as a part of India," Modi asked.
Accusing Congress of playing vote bank politics on the fake encounter case, Modi lambasted the ruling party at the Centre and also the CBI, which is probing the 2005 killing.
"There is an attempt to pollute the environment of Gujarat. This is an insult of the judicial system of Gujarat..its judges..its lawyers," Modi said at a function here.
"They are trying to malign my name for the last eight years. But now they have started maligning the judicial system of the state.
