‘No role of Cong in CBI’s action against Kataria’

Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot on Thursday dismissed BJP's allegations that CBI has chargesheeted leader of opposition in the state assembly Gulab Chand Kataria in Sohrabuddin encounter case at the behest of Congress.

‘Congress has no role in the case and law will take its own course,’ Gehlot told reporters here.

On Kataria's announcement on Thursday that he would resign as MLA if arrested in the case, Gehlot said, ‘I leave it to Kataria that what he should do on moral ground after this development.’

The CBI has chargesheeted Kataria, who was Rajasthan Home Minister when the encounter took place, and three others for murder charges in Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case. BJP has accused CBI of working at Congress' behest to implicate its members under a ‘well-planned conspiracy’.

On Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's meeting with state leaders, ‘The meeting was successful in Bikaner on Wednesday and the rounds of meeting are going on here. The message for partymen is that those who will work will get importance in the party,’ he said.
