Why Modi quiet on snooping row: Cong
New Delhi, Nov 23: The Congress on Saturday demanded an explanation from BJP's prime ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi over the alleged snooping on a young woman by the police of his state.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari asked why the BJP leader, even while addressing every other issue, has chosen to remain silent on the snooping issue.

Amit Shah, former Gujarat minister and a man close to Modi, has been accused of misusing power and the police machinery for keeping watch on a young woman in 2009.

Tewari also hit out at the opposition party, asking why its MLAs accused of inciting riots in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh recently, were felicitated by the party at a rally of Modi in Agra. Is the BJP trying to exonerate them, Tewari asked.

Modi is saying on every other issue, then why not on snooping row, asked Tewari

Also taking a dig at the BJP leaders' accusing the UPA of implementing poor policies and the improper dissemination of funds for development, Tewari said the opposition party was trying to steal the credit from the Congress-led government at the Centre. He said the BJP governments in states like Madhya Pradesh and others were claiming central policies as their own.

Tewari also mocked Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, saying the latter decided to contest from two constituencies even though he was not confident.
