Nothing extraordinary in Modi appearing before SIT: Cong

March 27, 2010 19:59 IST

The Congress said there was "nothing extraordinary" in Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi appearing before the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team in connection with the 2002 Gujarat riots case, as he had only done his duty.

"It is the duty of every citizen to abide by the judicial process and if he has done it then I think he has done his duty as a citizen of this country. There is nothing extraordinary about it," All India Congress Committee general secretary Janardan Dwivedi told the media.

Earlier in the day, Modi appeared before the SIT and was questioned for the first time on his alleged role in the 2002 Gujarat riots case at the old state secretariat building in Gandhinagar.
