What does the SIT say about Ahmed Patel?

A special investigation team (SIT) of the Gujarat Police has been probing journalist Teesta Setalvad‘s role, as well as that of others, in a case of alleged criminal conspiracy and forgery, and has also claimed that she received money from Ahmed Patel.

The SIT in its affidavit claimed Setalvad was part of a larger conspiracy to destabilise the Gujarat government by falsely implicating people in the 2002 riots.

Political Reactions after the allegations.

The congress party has refuted these charges calling them ‘mischievous’ and lamenting that ‘the prime minister’s political vendetta’ did not even spare those who had died.

In a statement, the congress party has also said “This is part of (the) prime minister’s systematic strategy to absolve himself of any responsibility for the communal carnage unleashed when he was chief minister in Gujarat in 2002. It was his unwillingness and incapacity to control this carnage that had led the then prime minister, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, to remind the chief minister of his raj dharma.”

The BJP spokesperson Sambut Patra accused Sonia Gandhi in his statement saying “Ahmed Patel is just a name, the driving force was his boss Sonia Gandhi. Through her chief political advisor Ahmed Patel, Sonia Gandhi attempted to malign Gujarat’s image. Through him, she attempted to insult Narendra Modi and she was the architect of this entire conspiracy,” the BJP spokesperson said

Ahmed Patel’s daughter Mumtaz Patel also released a statement on Twitter “I guess his name – Ahmed Patel – still holds weight to be used for political conspiracies (and) to malign the opposition. Why during UPA year(s) Teesta Setalvad was not rewarded and made Rajya sabha member, and why the centre uptil 2020 did not prosecute my father for hatching such a big conspiracy,” she tweeted.
