Ahmedabad: Protesting the arrest of
former minister Amit Shah, the State BJP on Sunday held a mute
rally here, where hundreds of party workers marched with black
cloth around their mouth, amid heavy rains.
Senior leaders of the party including party president
R C Faldu and MLAs from the city participated in the rally
where there was no slogan shouting against the CBI or the
Congress. But the partyworkers carried banners with anti-CBI
and anti-Congress slogans.
The rally was held immediately after the arrest of
Amit Shah by the CBI in connection with the Sohrabuddin fake
encounter case of 2005.
BJP spokesperson Vijay Rupani said that similar
rallies would be taken out tomorrow in cities like Surat,
Rajkot, Vadodara, Bhavnagar, Jamnagar and Junagadh.
