Day after marathon session with SIT, Modi shares dais with CJI

Mar 28, 2010

Declining to comment on pleas that he stay away from sharing the dais with Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan said today: “What can I do if GNLU invited me for the function? I have nothing to say, I don’t want to add to the controversy.”

Justice Balakrishnan was speaking at the sidelines of the Gujarat National Law University (GNLU) convocation here on Sunday, a day after Modi was questioned by the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) for his alleged role in the 2002 Gulberg Society killings.

The children of former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri — who was among the 69 killed in Gulberg Society — Nishrin Hussain, Zuber Jafri and Najid Hussain, had, on Saturday, launched an online petition, which got hundreds of signatories within hours, pleading with Justice Balakrishnan and a retired Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Zimbabwe, Ahmed Musa Ebrahim, not to share the platform with Modi.
