Tiruchirapalli, Nov 18 (UNI) Tamil Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMMK) president Jawarullah today demanded the resignation of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the wake of Tehelka's expose on post-Godhra riots.
Addressing a press conference here, Mr Jawarullah urged the Centre to arrest Mr Modi and impose President's rule in Gujarat at least for a year. He also urged to hold elections to the Gujarat Assembly.
Expressing his gratitude to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi for his gesture to provide exclusive reservation for Muslim minorities in education and jobs, Mr Jawarullah said the TMMK would organise a thanksgiving function for him in Chennai on November 24.
Referring to the incident of ''human rights violation'' at Nandigram in West Bengal, he said ''it is unfortunate that such ''unwarranted'' incidents are happening in a state ruled by a party which ''claims'' to be people's ''saviour''.
He urged the West Bengal Government and the Centre to take necessary steps to bring in peace in Nandigram.
