New Delhi: Facing allegations from the Gujarat government in the snoogate controversy,  suspended IAS officer Pradeep Sharma today told the Supreme Court that state government was acting in a discriminatory manner against him.  


Countering state government's affidavit containing various allegations like “illicit relationships” and involvement in criminal cases, he said Chief Minister Narendra Modi employed the entire might of the State Administration to “victimize, intimidate, terrorize and persecute him, including registration of the baseless FIRs and his consequent incarceration”.

He said there is a clear case of discrimination as FIR has been registered against him for alleged misuse of mobile number belonging to a private company but no such action has been taken against the Chief Minister, who used the mobile number owned by another private company on which the lady in question was in touch with him.

“It is most respectfully submitted that while one of the FIRs pertaining to the Petitioner (Sharma) herein, contains allegation for mis-using the mobile number ‘xxxxxxxx99' which belongs to a private company i.e., M/s Welspun.
