New Delhi, Feb 20: Union law minister Kapil Sibal on Thursday took a dig at BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi over the latter's silence on the decision of the Tamil Nadu government to release seven killers of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. Sibal said may be Modi doesn't want to speak against his sister.

The Supreme Court on Thursday stalled the decision of the AIADMK government to release the prisoners after the Centre filed a review petition in the apex court which had commuted the death sentence of three convicts to life on grounds of delay in deciding mercy petitions.

Anand Sharmja, another Congress Union minister also slammed Jayalalithaa, questioning her changing stands on the LTTE. The AIADMK was once a strong critic of the LTTE, the outfit which was behind the killing of Rajiv Gandhi.

DMK chief Karunanidhi also criticised Jayalalithaa, asking her to take decisions by following proper procedures or else such steps could lead to problems.
