Cong accuses BJP of �double speak�

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Dec 27 � Defending the decision to set up an inquiry commission to go into Gujarat snoopgate, Law Minister Kapil Sibal today accused BJP of �double speak� and said a probe ordered by the Narendra Modi government on it will meet fate of a probe panel on post-Godhra riots which is yet to give its report, reports PTI.

�The Nanavati Commission was set up by Narendra Modi in order to help absolve himself of any wrong doing in Gujarat. Instead of four months, it has taken over 11 years and the inquiry report is still awaited,� Sibal said on his website.

�Setting up a Commission of Inquiry by the Gujarat government in relation to snoopgate will meet the same fate,� he said.

He said there is �ample evidence� to suggest that various provisions of the Information Technology Act, Telegraph Act, IPC as well as right to privacy of a young girl and her family were violated in the snooping incident.

The Union Cabinet had yesterday decided to set up a Commission of Inquiry to probe charges of spying on the young woman in 2009 allegedly at the behest of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

The commission, to be headed by a retired Supreme Court judge, will also look into charges of snooping on Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh by the previous BJP government when he was in the opposition as well as the leaking of the call data records (CDR) of BJP leader Arun Jaitley in Delhi.
