Meanwhile, Congress State President Siddharth Patelsaid "We do not want to comment on the Godhra train carnagejudgement as it has not been the policy of Congress."
"But, definitely there are some issues revolvingaround this judgement," Patel said.
"If the state government and police had workedvigilantly, the 63 acquitted in this case today would not havehad to undergo this ordeal," he said.
"We, since the beginning have been saying that theculprits should be brought to book and no innocent should bepunished," Patel said.
