Modi not responsible for 2002 Gujarat riots: Ramdev
Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Thursday accused the Congress party of creating barriers between the masses and said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is not responsible for Gujarat riots.
"Modi didn't cause the 2002 riots of Gujarat, riots were caused by a sadistic mentality and the Congress has given birth to such ideology which divides the nation on the basis of religion," he told media here.
"India, Pakistan and Bangladesh were not created by Modi, they were not created by the BJP either, the party wasn't even created at that time, RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) did not create those nations. Congress and the Nehru family have divided the nation," he added.
Ramdev added that all anti-national forces and militants were targeting Modi because they do not want him as the future Prime Minister of the country for their own motives.
"All anti national forces along with the opposition, also militants, any militant who is held in Jammu, Kashmir, Delhi, UP or Bihar, everyone has the same target of finishing Modi; no militant says that their target is either Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi. This means the country's anti national forces don't want to see Modi as the nation's Prime Minister," he said.
BJP's Lok Sabha candidate from Chandigarh, Kirron Kher, was also present, and Ramdev was all praises for her saying that she is a ray of hope against Congress candidate Pawan Bansal who is also contesting from the same constituency.
