NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday said Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi cannot escape ‘moral responsibility’ for the 2002 post-Godhra riots notwithstanding the ‘clean chit’ given to him by a court. Pawar at the same time said he respected the verdict of the court that exonerated the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate in a Gujarat riots case.

‘The court has said something that we have to respect. But I also say, if I am a CM of the state, and if something happens like this(riots), I cannot bypass my responsibility, moral responsibility,’ the Union Agriculture Minister told CNN-IBN. On being specifically asked whether he believed that Modi had the moral responsibility when riots broke out in Gujarat, Pawar replied,’ Any CM including Narendra Modi.’
