With Shweta Bhatt announcing that she will contest the Maninagar Assembly constituency in Gujarat today,the link between IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt and the Congress party was exposed.
Shweta has made it clear that she will contest the poll against the BJP’s leader and Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi.In her own words she had admitted that she was going to be the official candidate of the Congress party.
“We have moved far away from democracy in Gujarat and to restore it, everyone has to do whatever they can. Fighting election against Modi is the logical step in our quest for democracy and to curb anti-democratic forces,” she is quoted having told the media persons.
Incidentally,while Shweta is expected to file her nomination papers soon,Bhatt,in an affidavit in the Supreme Court last year,had alleged complicity on the part of Modi in the 2002 riots.He had also deposed against Modi before the Nanavati Commission, probing the riots.
Now,the link between the Congress party and Bhatt,who was the Principal, SRP Training School and was suspended by the Modi government,was no secret.
