NCP differs with Rahul Gandhi, says ‘respect court order on Gujarat riots’

‘We are in an era when we believe that the judicial system is the final recourse to getting justice on any issue or to bring finality to any controversy and if the judicial system has given any pronouncement, we ought to respect it. We will not question it further,’ Union minister Praful Patel told reporters here.

He was replying to questions on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s attack on the Gujarat chief minister in a television interview accusing his government of abetting and pushing the 2002 riots in the state.

Patel said it was for each one to give his or her version in an interview but politics was based on perception of not just the politicians but the public too.

‘But the fact remains that if the judicial system has given certain finality to any controversy, then we should let it rest there,’ the NCP leader said.
