Facts of Shah's involvement are concocted, says Jaitley

NEW DELHI: Leaders of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley respectively on Friday charged the UPA government with shelving cases against its own allies, victimising Opposition party leaders and using CBI cases as a sword of Damocles against leaders such as Mulayam Singh and Mayawati to force them to support it whenever it was in difficulty, as during the trust motion on the India-U.S. nuclear bill and the cut motion during the Budget session.

Mr. Jaitley said, “The strategy of the UPA was to allow a media trial of Amit Shah, feed the people with half-truths through the media, create a prejudicial environment, use this to further its vote-bank politics [among Muslims] and break up the Opposition unity on the price rise and other issues.”

Asked which facts were distorted as the Gujarat government had admitted in the Supreme Court to the fake encounter killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, his wife Kausarbi and friend Tulsi Prajapati, he said: “Today's press conference is not about those three encounter deaths/ killings.” The “facts of Amit Shah's involvement are concocted,” he alleged.

He “regretted” and “condemned” the recent killing of an RTI activist in Gujarat, allegedly by a BJP legislator, saying “whoever is guilty must be taken to task.”
