Modi should be forced to quit!

The conviction of BJP MLA Maya Kodnani, very close aide and former minister in Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's cabinet by the special court along with 30 others in the 2002 Naroda Patiya riots case in which 97 people were burnt alive is welcome and timely one and has exposed the working of the chief minister under whose instruction she must have distributed the arms and ammunition to butcher the innocent and helpless people. Since the killings took place right under the nose of Narendra Modi's who is popularly called 'Maut Ka Saudagar' must apologise publicly in writing and must resign from his post with immediate effect, as he has no authority to remain in power after conviction of his aides. I strongly feel that BJP, which as per CAG report on coal blocks is asking the Prime Minister to resign and not allowing Parliament to function by wasting public money and precious time, must put their own house in order and ask Narendra Modi to step down for the merciless killings. The urgent need of the hour is that Congress must wage a war against the Narendra Modi and put pressure on BJP leadership to act and expose Modi in the eyes of the people of the state and the country who do not want to see the projected future prime minister with his hand in blood.

Communalism, is perhaps worse than corruption for it destroys the country's fabric and is a threat to humanity itself.

Mischief mongers who try to divide our land by spreading the hate venom should be sent to the gallows. A Gujarat special court on Wednesday convicted 32 people, including former BJP minister Mayaben Kodnani and Bajrang Dal leader Babu Bajrangi, for killing 97 Muslims in one of the worst incidents of mob violence post the 2002 Godhra carnage. For those who believe in Chief Minister Narendra Modi's complicity in the Gujarat genocide, I guess the belief just got stronger.
