New Delhi, Dec 29: Two days after the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi expressed his 'pain' over 2002 Gujarat riots through a blog, Union Law Minister Kapil Sibal questioned its 'timing' on Sunday.

According to a report, Sibal said that the blog was a ploy to garner voters sympathy in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

Sibal said that Modi's blog seemed to be a calculated attempt to woo the voters.

"Eleven years is too late. This pain and agony reflected in the blog is for an audience whose sympathy will be vital in May, 2014", he said.

"I wonder which sisters and brothers Modi was addressing to when he talked about his personal pain. The sisters and brothers of those who lost their lives needed the healing touch and that too, immediately after the riots," he further said.

"Pain is always heart-felt and spontaneous. Pain is an emotion that is expressed without calculation. Pain can never be a belated reaction after 11 years of silence. And a person who suffers in silence cannot remain silent for 11 years," Sibal said.
