Gujarat riots are definitely a watershed moment in the Indian Politics. This incident has a massive impact on the psyche of Indian electoral. We have seen a massive hounding of Hindus and the then Gujarat CM Narendra Modi. We have seen how aggressively Congress and the entire Secular-Liberal-Leftist cabal attacked Modi, and they are doing that even today.
However, they are yet to make any difference, at least till now. Instead, their conspiracy is getting exposed with each passing day. The biggest conspirator against Modi was Teesta Setalvad, who did every possible thing to implicate Modi and destabilize the then Gujarat government.
Activist Teesta Setalvad was enacting a larger conspiracy to destabilize an elected Gujarat government soon after a train in Godhra was set in fire in 2002, and had received financial assistance from a top leader of a rival political party, the state government’s special investigation team (SIT) has said.
Opposing the bail application of activist Teesta Setalvad, the state on Wednesday submitted before the Gujarat High Court that her potential to tamper with evidence is the “most important feature” weighing against her. The state also insisted the charges she is facing are in relation to the fabrication of false evidence, adding that she was paid Rs 30 lakh by Ahmed Patel of the Congress to unseat the Narendra Modi government following the 2002 Gujarat riots.
The state’s prosecution, represented by Public Prosecutor Mitesh Amin, also submitted before the court of Justice Nirzar Desai that Setalvad was a “tool in the hands of certain politicians of certain political party”, referring to Congress leader Ahmed Patel, who died in 2020.
In turn, he stressed, Setalvad made two police officers, namely her co-accused former IPS Sanjiv Bhatt and retired DGP RB Sreekumar, “tools”, with the motive “to see (to it)
that the existing establishment (in 2002, when Gujarat CM was Narendra Modi) is unseated, face problems and their image in the society is tarnished.” Submitting that Ahmed Patel paid Rs 30 lakh to Setalvad to ensure the implication and unseating of the then-establishment in the 2002 Gujarat riots, Amin added that after money started flowing in, a stage came when FIRs were registered against certain persons but it was immaterial to Setalvad as to whether they were tried or punished.
“…what was the motive for them was to see that the establishment of that time gets unseated. Pursuant to this, they were in search of a complainant who could be the complainant to propagate this. So ultimately, the first choice fell upon the father of the deceased Haren Pandya, namely Vithalbhai Pandya, who was aggrieved for reasons best known to him, against the highest functionary of the state (then CM Modi).” submitted the prosecution. Prosecution will continue its arguments on Thursday.
BJP attacks Congress and Sonia Gandhi
BJP’s spokesperson Sambit Patra attacked Congress for its nefarious propaganda and act. He clearly blamed Sonia Gandhi for this entire conspiracy.
He said, that, “The Conspiracy to malign the Image of Gujarat was hatched by Teesta Setalvad & her accomplices at the behest of Sh Ahmed Patel. Ahmed Patel ji was the Political Advisor of Congress President Smt Sonia Gandhi. BUCK STOPS AT THE DOOR OF SONIA GANDHI!”
Setalvad held meetings with Patel and also received ₹5 lakh at the first instance from a witness on the instructions of the Congress leader, the committee said. She received ₹25 lakh more two days later, again at the behest of Patel, the SIT said.
Patel succumbed to Covid-19 in November 2020. The cash money given to the activist was not part of any relief-related corpus and the presence of several political leaders during the period of this meeting is corroborated by the material collected in the investigation, the SIT said.
Gujarat Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi said he was not fully aware of the contents of the affidavit. “We will be able to comment only after fully studying the matter,” he said.A Congress leader in Delhi, who did not wish to be named, said: “Dead people don’t tell tales.”
