Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader Ali Anwar on Tuesday hit out at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi following the resignation of Gujarat IPS officer DG Vanzara, and said that the BJP leader believes in ‘use and throw’ policy.
“Narendra Modi is a leader who believes in 'use and throw'. Vanzara used to be his favourite officer,” he said.
Vanzara, who is a key accused in alleged fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Sheikh and some similar cases, resigned on Tuesday blaming Chief Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah for it.
In his 10-page resignation letter to the Additional Chief Secretary of Home Department, the suspended IPS officer stated that he was resigning from the service and renounced all the post-retirement benefits.
Vanzara put the entire blame on Modi and Shah, saying the two did not protect Gujarat’s policemen. He stated that he was shocked to see that the state government did not back him when his name appeared in fake encounter cases.
He alleged that Shah used the police machinery for political mileage and literally ruled the state.
Vanzara has also claimed that Shah and Modi colluded to keep all police officers, accused of involvement in fake encounter cases, in jail to protect themselves.
