Prosecute Narendra Modi


The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) issued the following statement on April 23, 2011.


THE affidavit filed by a senior Gujarat Police official in the Supreme Court has provided direct evidence of the role of the Gujarat chief minister, Narendra Modi, in the 2002 pogroms against the minority community. In the affidavit, the police official has stated that the chief minister instructed senior police officials in a meeting not to act to protect Muslims from violence.


This testimony of the police officer, Sanjeev Bhatt, confirms the culpability of the chief minister in the pogroms. There should be no further delay in the investigations into the role of Narendra Modi and initiating steps to prosecute him.
