Introduction: October 5, 2007 Spews venom on Congress govt; says Sohrabuddin was a terrorist

Breaking his silence for the first time on the Sohrabuddin encounter killing, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi yesterday, said Sohrabbudin was not innocent and the Congress should be 'ashamed for trying to give him a character certificate'.

"More than 100 AK 47 rifles were recovered from his field, and my rivals were going on about how I would be finished (after the arrest of the cops) and how it was my end.

The Congress should be ashamed for giving Sohrabuddin a character certificate," said Modi, while speaking about the law and order situation in his state.

Sohrabuddin was allegedly killed in a fake encounter in Gujarat after being forcibly taken off a bus. Though he was a history-sheeter, the Gujarat police claimed he was in fact a terrorist.

After rebuking the Congress government on the Ram Setu issue, he spoke on how the tourism ministry is portraying a wrong image of India when the brochures printed and distributed by it abroad contain illustrations of Krishna disrobing gopis.

"Is this the way we promote tourism? Do you sell your own mother?" thundered Modi.

Modi was speaking at the Shanmukhananda Hall where a function was organised by the Vande Mataram Foundation to felicitate him as the best chief minister.

However, the programme seemed more like an election rally with Modi speaking about his achievements as chief minister in the last six years.
