Narendra Modi being targeted through me: Amit Shah
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Narendra Modi`s close aide Amit Shah who has been questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation in connection with the Ishrat Jahan encounter case said on Tuesday that fake encounter cases in other states don`t get much focus but cases related to Ishraat Jahan get more publicity because Modi is involved in it.
Shah added that the government is framing the BJP`s PM candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi because it cannot fight him politically.
"These investigations are being done to defame the BJP and Narendra Modi," Shah, who is now the incharge of Uttar Pradesh BJP, said in a TV interview.
While dragging Prime Minister Manmohan Singh into the matter, The BJP general secretary, who is out on bail, questioned why the PM or the Union Home Minister were not facing similar investigations in cases involving central agency IB.
Accused in Sohrabuddin alleged fake encounter case, Narendra Modi` aide Amit Shah today questioned why only encounters in Gujarat were being investigated and sought to drag the Prime Minister in the controversy.
Claiming the case against him was fake, Shah, who was Home Minister under Chief Minister Modi, said Gujarat was being singled out to defame the BJP and Modi due to political motives as 17 of the 18 cases being investigated out of 1,500 encounter cases in the country were from his state.
