Indian MujahideenUttar Pradesh, November 08, 2013: The BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Friday accused the UPA government of giving a “free run” to terror outfit Indian Mujahideen, after it felt it cannot stop him democratically.

The Gujarat chief minister also accused the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) of misusing the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to target Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders.

He said the advisory to TV news channels on the prime minister’s Independence Day speech was aimed at suppressing the voice of opposition.

In a hard-hitting attack on the Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) at a rally here, Modi said the three parties had similar DNA, and urged people of Uttar Pradesh to give a decisive mandate to the BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

On the communal violence in Muzaffarnagar and subsequent arrest of two BJP legislators, Modi said the state government did not have power against the guilty and was putting innocent people in jail “for its vote bank politics”.

He said the Congress was defeated in three successive elections in Gujarat.

“Those who feel that they cannot stop Modi democratically are adopting other means. Sometimes (give) free run to Indian Mujahideen, ask CBI to trail… listen with open ears. We are made of different stuff. We will defeat terror and finish it,” he said.

Modi said he felt the “trio” of the SP, BSP and the Congress will not fight the forthcoming polls but that “CBI and Indian Mujahideen will handle the front so that they can save Congress”.

On the blasts on the day of his rally in Patna last month in which six people were killed, Modi said innocents were targetted.

The involvement of Indian Mujahideen in the terror attack is being probed.

Modi said there was no place for violence in democracy.

On the government’s advisory to TV news channels over the “denigration” of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s Independence Day speech, Modi said the directive came after news channels were showing his (Modi’s) speech live.

He said the advisory was sent about “a week back”.

“But the real concern (behind the advisory) was not the prime minister’s honour. They were restive that the channels telecast Modi’s speech live but only showed visuals of shahzade’s speech (during those hours),” Modi said in an apparent reference to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.

“Rulers of Delhi, please listen with your ears open. TV may not show (speeches) but (we) have made place among people,” Modi said.

Without naming Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, who are MPs from Uttar Pradesh, Modi said they have not done enough for the state despite holding influence in the Congress-led UPA government.

He also accused Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav of misplaced priorities.

Modi said while Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was able to bring the state out of backwardness, leaders of the SP and BSP have failed to do so in Uttar Pradesh.
