New Delhi, Dec 5 (UNI) A day after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi said in a rally that ''Sohrabuddin got what he deserved'', the Left parties today asked the Supreme Court and the National Human Rights Commission, among others, to take cognisance of Mr Modi's open remarks about his ''crime''.
The Left also asked the Centre, the CBI and the people of the country to take note of Mr Modi's utterances at the rally.
The CPI(M) and the CPI said the move was necessitated as the Chief Minister was trying to whip up communal polarisation to achieve a hat-trick in the upcoming Gujarat assembly polls.
CPI leaders A B Bardhan and Shamim Faizi said, '' The documented exposure that Mr Modi is under attack from terrorists because of so-called encounters is a sheer farce.'' ''Mr Modi himself organised such encounters and tried to project himself as the national saviour, '' the CPI leaders said.
They said as he apprehends that his crimes are going to be exposed he has used the Sohrabuddin case to cover his misdeed.
The nation and other institutions should take note of it and Mr Modi should be ousted before he uses it for communal polarisation in Gujarat.
CPI(M) senior leader and Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha Mohhammad Salim said starting from the Tehalka expose and now during the election campaign Mr Modi is openly making proclamation about his crime.
''The Manmohan Singh government, apex court, NHRC, CBI and the people of the country should take note of it,'' they urged.
They said by whipping up communal passions he is engineering and using the Godhra incident and the post-Godhra carnage to consolidate his Hindu votebank.
''He could manage to win the last time, but this time it is not so easy,'' they added.
