Vadodara: Gujarat health minister Jaynarayan Vyas on Saturday dubbed CBI chargesheet against Minister of State for Home Amit Shah in Sohrabuddin fake encounter case as an attempt of Centre to divert Opposition's attention from important issues ahead of Parliament session beginning Monday.

"The CBI's moves are aimed at protecting the government from Opposition's attacks in the Parliament by diverting its attention from issues like price rise, failed talks with Pakistan and the escape of Warren Anderson from India," Vyas told reporters on the sidelines of a Garib Kalyan Mela at Savli town here.

"The Congress-led UPA government has failed on all fronts and that is why it is misusing power," he alleged and charged the CBI of acting on Congress's political agendas on baseless facts.

"Why CBI is targeting BJP leaders like L K Advani, Murali Manohar Joshi and others and not people like Ottavio Quattrocchi, Jagdish Tytler and Satish Sharma?" Vyas asked.

Vyas said BJP has high respect for the law and will fight a legal battle.
