Gujarat Congress today opened a new front against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi who is PM candidate of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
Alleging that Modi is protecting and promoting interests of controversial godman, PCC president Arjun Modhwadia said that both Modi and Asaram should be put to lie detector test. He said that despite scores of instances of violence, encroachment and sexual exploitation in the last 12 years, no action has been taken against Asaram. Modhwadia said that Modi is giving political shelter to the godman Asaram.
He released a CD to media which showed the closeness between Modi and Asaram in which both mutually praised each other. Citing number of instances of unlawful activities of Asaram Modhwadia demanded that there should be an inquiry into the misdeeds of Asaram by a special team under the supervision of High Court.
He said that in 2001-2002 when Modi contested first election of his life Asaram camped in Rajkot constituency and conducted rituals for the victory of Modi. Asaram had openly claimed that he was present there to ensure victory of Modi. This was during by-election when Modi was made Chief Minister without being MLA, he said.
