    Should malnourished children of Gujarat eat Modi's roads and factories?
    Two weeks after stirring controversy over his remarks in his blog against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, the Press Council of India (PCI) chairman, Justice (retired) Markandey Katju, has targeted the BJP heavyweight once again.

    In his latest attack on Modi, Katju has written in a Pakistani newspaper, criticising the Gujarat chief minister, holding him responsible for the 2002 riots in the state.

    The BJP hit out at the former Supreme Court judge over his latest article "Should malnourished children of Gujarat eat roads, electricity and factories, which Modi has created?"


    Gujarat BJP leader Jay Narayan Vyas said, "I am not surprised with this. Justice Katju is a retired justice. They (people in Pakistan) would try to establish a relation similar to Nazism. It proves that it is an irresponsible statement. There are some reasonable restrictions also. The enemy country uses it for making a case at international level."

    "We can't expect them to leave such an opportunity. They have related the Nazi massacre with the Gujarat case. Justice Katju should follow the reasonable restrictions. The government has acquired a soft status on the cross-border terrorism. The UPA government is divided in many segments. It think the government has failed in this aspect also like in economic aspect," Vyas said holding the UPA government responsible for the PCI chief's attack on Modi.

    BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar said, "What Justice Katju writes is not taken seriously by anyone. But if someone writes about internal Indian politics in Pakistan, then an issue rises that if a judge can get involved in internal politics. He mentioned that he wrote so as an independent citizen. If Katjuji wants to do politics, then he should do politics."

    "Everybody has a freedom to write and express. He says he is writing in his capacity as a citizen... He is an active member of 'hate Modi campaign'. He is doing politics. He cannot separate his two roles when he is already heading a constitutional body," he said.

    Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid, however, defended the PCI chief and the UPA government in the latest controversy.

    "Justice Katju is a retired officer. In our nation, everyone has a right to put forth his/her views. Where does it get published, we cannot have a control over that," the minister said.

    comment from First post article

    NM Mallikarjuna • 3 hours ago −
    Mr. Katju, couple of weeks back, claimed "Pakistan is a fake country". Now he has chosen Pakistani daily for his rants on Shri. Modi. A sensible person would not write "real" issues in a daily belonging to a "fake" country. There is no need to give credence to articles written by a not so sensible person. However, Mr. Katju, being a sensible person, would have chosen to write only "fake" article in a daily belonging to a country which is "fake" according to him. This recent incident having been done and dusted logically, there may not be any need for BJP or Shri. Modi to react.
