New Delhi, Mar 10: The Parliament may witness some stormy scenes today as Home Minister of India Rajnath Singh is expected to speak on the Ishrat Jahan issue today. There has been a lot in the news about Ishrat Jahan who was killed in an encounter at Gujarat.

The case has witnessed many flip-flops and the BJP today is relying heavily on the statements made by former Union Home Ministry G K Pillai who had accused the former Home Minister of India, P Chidambaram of revising the affidavit.

Flip flops to be probed:

The Union Home Ministry had called for the relevant files relating to Ishrat Jahan after the revelations made by Pillai.

There is however one note which had the legal opinion of the then Attorney General which is missing. The government would seek to know from the Congress which was in power then about this note.

The NDA government is however clear in its approach regarding this case. While it states that revision of an affidavit is well within the right of a Home Minister, none have the right to tamper with the facts.

Tampering with the facts would amount to changing the narrative of the case. The government feels that this particular aspect needs to be probed and those responsible for tampering with facts must be probed.
