Bhavnagar- In the backdrop of CBI's reported move to quizz him in Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter killing case, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said he cannot be frightened and would fight against "falsehood" 100 times.
"The war between nationalists and anti-nationalist demons has started in Gujarat. But remember this is Gujarat where anti-nationalists forces will be defeated", Modi said addressing a rally in Palitana town of this district.
"If you think that you can frighten me, you should open your ears and listen, Modi will bow down to truth and will fight 100 times against falsehood," Modi said in stepped-up offensive at a Van Mohatsav function.
"I want to tell Delhi Sultanat (central government), Gujarat is inheritor of legacy of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel who provided leadership to win our freedom. Gujarat will win in this war of nationalism and anti-nationalism", he said.
"This country never takes the side of those who stand besides terrorists, those fighting for rights of 'demons', anti-nationals and those related with underworld activities," Modi said.
Shah, former minister of state for Home, has been arrested by CBI for his alleged role in Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case and the agency is reportedly planning to question Modi too.
"For the last eight years, there has been peace and development in the state. They are trying to destabilise the progress of Gujarat," Modi claimed.
"They are jealous of progress of Gujarat and so they are not trying to derail the progress of the state", he said.
Addressing a rally in Ahmedabad, Modi yesterday had said Congress has already accepted defeat in the forthcoming local body polls and will have to field CBI officers as their candidates. PTI
