Lalu refuses to give clean chit to Nitish in Godhra case

Refusing to buy Nitish Kumar's argument absolving himself of the Godhra tragedy, RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Wednesday him of closing the Railways' probe in the train burning incident to suit the interest of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

‘Nitish as Railway Minister had closed inquiry into the Sabarmati train burning incident to suit interest of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. This had triggered riots,’ Prasad, who succeeded Kumar as Railway Minister in UPA-I, told reporters here.

‘Rail se Godhra ka pura khel suru huan’ (the entire game of Godhra begun from Railway),’ Prasad said, refusing to give clean chit to Kumar in the episode.

‘He (Kumar) cannot absolve himself from the Godhra incident merely by saying that Railway looks into safety and not law and order problem,’ Prasad said.
