Congress conspired to frame Amit Shah, says BJP
The BJP leader was reacting to the special CBI court's recent decision acquitting Shah and others in the case
The Congress "misused" the CBI to frame BJP President Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Wednesday, demanding Rahul Gandhi's apology for his party's actions.
The BJP leader was reacting to the special CBI court's recent decision acquitting Shah and others in the case. "The Congress plays with the security of the country for its gains. It has become clear from the CBI court's judgment which acquitted all accused and termed it a political conspiracy," Adityanath said.
"Rahul Gandhi should apologise to the country and clear his party's stand on backing a terrorist (Sheikh)," he said, adding that the Congress leadership was involved in a conspiracy to send Shah to jail but the court's judgment had exposed them.
"Congress leader Sonia Gandhi and the then PM Dr Manmohan Singh were involved in the conspiracy. The Congress was working in the interest of a terrorist, who was fighting against the country," he said.
