Congress slams Gujarat CM Modi for issuing mass transfer order

   Apr 10, 11:29 am

New Delhi, Apr 10 (ANI): Slamming Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for issuing mass transfer orders of 68 administrative officials in the state including Indian Police Service (IPS) personnel, the Congress party has said that the event is an example of panic on the former's part.

"Either this is a reflection of fear or it is a clear realisation of impending defeat, but it is clear that Mr. Modi in Gujarat is doing very large scale advance planning, because he is perhaps highly concerned about the election results, for the forthcoming assembly elections coming in the end of the year," Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi told media here.

"Sixty eight is not a small number, it is not a coincidence, it can not be justified as administrative postings only, 50 of these are IPS. It seems to be a collective methodology to try to place whom Modi thinks the appropriate person, at the appropriate spot well in advance. Whether that fear has been heightened by the recent loss in the bye election," Singhvi added.

Commenting on the bail granted to Dr. Khalil Chishty, a Pakistan scientist, who has spent many years at the Ajmer Central Jail in connection with a murder case, Singhvi said: ""But as far as the humanitarian aspect is concerned, it remains the same whether it is this side of the border or that side and if your indication is towards the humanitarian aspect, I don't think anybody, a political party, a government this side or a political party or a government that side will quibble about that sentiment.

"I am carefully repeating that I am not talking of the merits of the judicial decision but certainly the spirit of the humanitarian aspect in each of these cases and there are many, there are not only many in India but there are many in Pakistan, must be viewed from that point of view. And subject to the due processes of judicial review in each country under its own law. I don't see how anybody can object to that sentiment, but I am only looking at it as a sentiment not as any diktat or executive order or judicial direction," Singhvi added.

Dr Chishty, 80, is accused of killing a man during a brawl in Ajmer in April 1992. He was visiting the Rajasthan city then to offer prayers at the famous shrine of Sufi saint Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chisty. (ANI)
