Ahmedabad, Sep 26 (UNI) Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) Chief Spokeperson Arjun Modhwadia today alleged that Nanavati-Mehta Commission has neglected several evidences against the state government in the 2002 Godhra case.
Speaking to mediapersons here, Mr Modhwadia said it was unfortunate that the Commission has not held the state government responsible for the incident, which killed 59 passengers.
He alleged the Commission has neglected evidences indicating that the state government had definite information about the possibility of the attack on Sabarmati Express, which was returning from Ayodhya in Gujarat, and could have prevented it.
Mr Modhwadia said it would have been worth appreciation, if both the reports -- train burning incident at Godhra and post Godhra incidents would have been submitted together, as there were ample evidences about Chief Minister Narendra Modi and his ministers deterring the administration from taking any preventive action during the post-Godhra riots.
Under these circumstances, this report cannot be considered a clean chit to the Chief Minister, as the second part of the report is awaited, he said.
The state government yesterday tabled part one of the report, which concluded that the train burning was not an accident, but a conspiracy by Maulvi Umarji and six others, while giving a clean chit to Mr Modi, before the state Assembly.
