Cong calls upon Modi to follow 'Rajdharma'

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Oct 27 (UNI) The Congress today said that a statutory body, All India Minorities Commission, has in its report put the Narendra Modi Government in the dock for not taking rehabilitation measures for the 5000 families, displaced by Gujarat riots, living in camps, and called upon the Chief Minister to follow the "Rajdharma"by taking steps for their rehabilitation.

Congress Spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters here that five thousand families displaced by Gujarat riots were languishing in 45 camps in the State with none to listen to them and nowhere to go.

He said the Minorities Commision had visited the camps on October 17 to 20 and found that there was no arrangement for the rehabilitation of five thousand affected familites. The Commission had highlighted the pitiable condition of the people living there and the failure of the Modi Government in this regard. This had proved that the Modi Government was showing step motherly treatment towards the minorities, he added.

The Modi Government, he said, had the tendency not to swing into action until the court directed it to do so. He warned that if the Gujarat Government did not take measures for the rehabilitation of riot victims, the Modi Government would fall in the same manner as did the NDA Government at the Centre.

Mr Singhvi demanded that the Modi Government draw up a comprehensive plan of rehabilitation of the displaced persons and show proper response to each act of omission and commission highlighted by the Minorities Commission in its detailed report without waiting for a court directive to carry out its statutory obligations.
