Randeep Singh Surjewala, chief spokesperson of the Congress party, on Friday posted a letter on Twitter he says is issued by the BJP telling its MPs to ask Rahul Gandhi to apologise for “defaming Amit Shah in Justice Loya death case”, using all social media platforms including WhatsApp and SMS.
The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed the Public Interest Litigations (PIL) seeking independent investigation into the death of CBI Judge BH Loya, calling these politically motivated. Judge Loya, who was hearing the case of the Sohrabuddin alleged fake encounter case, in which now BJP President Amit Shah was an accused at the time, had suddenly died in Nagpur in December, 2014, where he had gone to attend a colleague’s daughter’s wedding. His death raised many serious questions. The Congress Party, after the judgment, once again released all apprehensions about Judge Loya’s death in the public domain.
On Thursday, Rahul Gandhi had tweeted, saying “Indians are deeply intelligent. Most Indians, including those in the BJP, instinctively understand the truth about Mr Amit Shah. The truth has its own way of catching up with people like him.”
