Lucknow, Oct 27 (UNI) Denouncing the Narendra Modi led-Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) in Gujarat, the Samajwadi Party (SP) today said the former deserved action and after the Tehelka sting, no investigation was needed into the 2002 post-Godhra violence, which had killed several innocent people.
''Through 'Truth Gujarat 2002' by Tehelka, people have seen the real face of Mr Modi. Now, no investigation is required...direct action ought to follow against him,'' SP general secretary Amar Singh said addressing mediapersons.
Several atrocities were committed on the people of Gujarat under Mr Modi's rule, especially on the minorities. The people should show him his real position, the SP leader added.
Mr Singh said, ''The Congress has always supported parties having anti-Muslim policies. The Rajiv Foundation, which honoured Mr Modi as the best CM owes an apology to people.'' On October 25, the Tehelka magazine, after a six-month investigation, claimed it had gathered evidence to prove that the perpetrators of the 2002 post-Godhra violence in Gujarat had the backing of Mr Modi.
The probe also claimed that the bombs used in the violence were manufactured in factories owned by the senior Bajrang Dal and VHP activists and arms were smuggled from UP, Bihar and Punjab and then distributed to execution squads led by MLAs and senior members of the Sangh parivar.
