Nanavati report politically motivated: Left parties

September 25th, 2008 - 9:31 pm ICT by IANS  

Narendra ModiNew Delhi, Sep 25 (IANS) The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) and Communist Party of India (CPI) Thursday described the tabling of the first part of the Nanavati Commission report in the Gujarat assembly as a politically motivated action by the Narendra Modi government.Tabling a split report, which deals only with the train burning tragedy, was a politically motivated move by the Modi government, CPI-M politburo member Brinda Karat said.

“There is no report on the violence that ensued in which hundreds of people were killed. So, it is an effort by the Gujarat government to give clean chit to Modi before the Lok Sabha elections,” Karat told IANS.

CPI leader D. Raja echoed the same sentiments and added: “We will have to study the details” of the report.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Gujarat tabled the first part of the report, confined only to the train burning incident at Godhra Feb 27, 2002, in the assembly Thursday.

The report found that the tragedy was pre-planned and it virtually gave a clean chit to Modi and his cabinet colleagues.
