Nanavati Commission set up to 'save the skin' of Narendra Modi, claims Congress 21.11.2014 DNA: Opinion
The Congress on Friday rejected the final report of the Justice Nanavati Commission on post Godhra riots in 2002 alleging that the panel was set up to "save the skin" of the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. "When the Commission was being set up, I had said that nothing will come out of this report. This Commission was set up to save the skin of Modi ji and was a wastage of public money," party spokesperson Shaktisinh Gohil said. "This commission was hurriedly set up by the state government then so that the possibility of Centre setting up any Commission gets dismal. The state government then acted as public, prosecutor and judge in this matter," he said. The former CLP leader of Gujarat alleged that public money was "wasted" for 12 years on this commission and suggested that "favours" were done to Nanavati's son by making him a public prosecutor. The Congress leader drew the media's attention to the fact that the report was presented to Chief Minister Anandiben Patel two days after the assembly ...

"So as to call him (Modi) before the Commission to come and to answer questions (asked) by us by meeting us in person, we did not find it proper to call him in person," Nanavati said. However, Nanavati was cautious when asked this meant that the Commission has given a clean chit to a person who was not called for questioning by the probe body. "Not necessarily.
