Chennai, Oct 30 (UNI) Members of the Tamil Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMMK) today staged a protest, demanding arrest of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, for allegedly backing the ''perpetrators of post-Godhra carnage'' in 2002.
Stating that the Tehelka investigating team had proved ''beyond doubt'' that the Modi Government had ''encouraged'' the carnage, the protestors also demanded the arrest of the then Gujarat Home Minister Gordghan Zadaphia and Ahmedabad City Police Commissioner P C Pande.
Besides arresting Mr Modi, the Centre should sack his government and impose President's rule in Gujarat and the Election Commission should not conduct the Assembly elections, scheduled for December, the protestors said.
The present situation after Tehelka exposure, was not condusive to hold elections, they said.
They demanded a CBI probe under the direct supervision of Supreme Court Chief Justice and the Election Commission should cancel the recognition accorded to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
They said all those who were exposed by Tehelka should be brought to book and the Centre should slap a ban on the RSS, the VHP and Bajrang Dal.
The protestors, led by TMMK General-Secretary Hyder Ali, shouted slogans against Mr Modi and his government. A large number of men and women took part in the agitation.
