New Delhi: Defending Narendra Modi in the
wake of allegations by a senior police official of his support
to post-Godhra rioters, former BJP President Rajnath Singh
today said he could not even imagine that the Gujarat Chief
Minister could do so.

"From what I know of Narendra Modi personally I cannot
even imagine (that he would have supported post-Godhra
rioters. The court will itself decide on the PIL or affidavit
that this person has filed," Singh told reporters in reply to
a question.
IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt has stated in an affidavit to
the Supreme Court that he was present in a meeting on
February 27, 2002 where Modi said the Muslims should be taught
a lesson for the Godhra riots. Modi is alleged to have said
that Hindus should be allowed to vent their anger.

Singh rose to Modi`s defence today and said Modi could
not have done so.
"I have full faith that truth will come out in the
coming days," Singh said.
