Politics has intensified in the country regarding the BBC documentary. One where Britain’s PM Sunak himself distanced himself from this documentary. At the same time, all the political parties in India are targeting the BJP government. Congress leader Rashid Alvi has accused the BJP-ruled central government of 2002 riots in Gujarat.
Speaking to Republic, Congress leader Rashid Alvi said, “2002 Gujarat riots is a part of history. Terrible chapter of history. You cannot deny it whether BBC or any other channel is making a documentary. This government And our prime minister wants to erase this chapter of history, but it is not possible.”
He further said, “The whole world remembers this. The then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had asked Narendra Modi to follow Rajdharma. America had refused to give visa to Prime Minister Modi at that time. Everyone knows this. More recently, a US State Department spokesman was asked, ‘How did your government allow Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman to be responsible for Khashoggi’s murder?’ Do you know what the US spokesman’s reaction was? He said, ‘This has happened before.’
On Thursday, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak gave a befitting reply to a Pakistani-origin British MP in Parliament for referring to a BBC documentary about PM Modi. Sunak defended PM Modi saying that he does not agree with such characterization. When the Congress leader was questioned about this, he said,
“Sunak is not the Chief Justice of India. He is the Prime Minister of that country. How can you trust Sunak if he has given a statement? As far as the evidence is concerned or the Supreme Court judgment is concerned, it is fine. But you cannot remove the chapter. This happened and who was the Chief Minister? Narendra Modi was the Chief Minister, who is responsible? Whatever happens in any state, good or bad, the Chief Minister is responsible. How can you deny it? Huh?”
The Supreme Court gave a clean chit to PM Modi in the 2002 Gujarat riots case. To this the Congress leader said, “I am not talking about clean chit. I am talking about facts. People were killed. Who was responsible for this? I don’t know whether the Supreme Court knows or not.” , But I am asking a simple question, who was responsible for the murder? Who was the Chief Minister of the state at that time? Narendra Modi was the CM.”
