March 15, 2011: SC directed the SIT to probe into alleged complicity of the Narendra Modi administration in the riots because of a mismatch between its findings and inferences. Mismatch were like for instance the SIT did not recommend that any of the high-ups be booked for destruction of evidence even after it had acknowledged the charge made by the complainants, Zakia Jafri and Teesta Setalvad, that vital records pertaining to the riots had been destroyed to shield the culprits.
April 11, 2011: PC Pandey, who had been commissioner of Ahmedabad in those disturbed times has now submitted a 3000 page scanned copy of reports to the Special Investigating Team. These reports had apparently been “destroyed” back then.
April 20, 2011: Setalvad in a letter to Malhotra urged the SIT to exercise caution in dealing with the evidence produced by Pande, who, after his stint as commissioner of Ahmedabad in 2002, went on to become DGP of Gujarat and is now, after his retirement from IPS, chairman of the state police housing corporation.
April 23, 2011: Mr. Modi addressed a huge public gathering on the outskirts of Palanpur town in North Gujarat on Saturday but his usual ebullience was missing. In his address at Palanpur, he said Gujarat would soon emerge as a power-surplus State. He said the fruits of his government’s long-term planning in the last 10 years would be reaching the people in the next few years.
He made no reference to the on-going turmoil over his alleged remarks against Muslims.
Questions: Is this Pandey’s turning into a new leaf, or saving his ass act?
Does Modi think he will get away so smoothly?
A person responsible for death of 58 (who were burnt alive) 790 + 254 (killed in resulting riots) and more 223 missing cases, can actually be a “representative” of the people? Is this our democracy? This is what People Power all about?
On one hand we are all gung ho about corruption and all that and on the other hand, we can sit at homes and see this happen.
What can we do: Get out of your comfy homes and VOTE next time………
