Congress instigated riots, BJP brought peace in Gujrat: Amit Shah

Congress instigated riots, BJP brought peace in Gujrat: Amit Shah

People responsible for the communal riots in Gujarat were "taught such a lesson" that the state has been peaceful for 22 years, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said at a rally ahead of next week's elections. "During the Congress rule in Gujarat (before 1995), communal riots were rampant. Congress used to incite people of different communities and castes to fight against each other. Through such riots, Congress had strengthened its vote bank and did injustice to a large section of the society," Mr Shah said in Mahudha town of Kheda district.

"There have been many riots in Bharuch, curfew, violence. There was no room for development in Gujarat because of the chaos. In 2002, they tried to indulge in communal violence... we taught them such a lesson, we put them in jail. It's been 22 years, we have not put a curfew even once. BJP has done the work to bring the peace to a land that saw frequent communal riots," he said.

Over 1,000 people were killed in the three-day violence in Gujarat in 2002 and the state police faced grave charges of not doing enough to stop the riots that began after a train coach carrying pilgrims was burnt in Godhra, killing 59 people.

BJP is hoping to break its record for the coming assembly elections.
