Congress, allies should seek apology from Amit Shah for tarnishing his image: Bihar BJP chief Congress and its allies hatched a conspiracy to malign the image of our party president Amit Shah,”said Bihar BJP chief Nityanand Rai.

Bihar BJP president Nityanand Rai on Friday asked Congress and its allies to tender an apology from party president Amit Shah for tarnishing his and his party’s image in Judge B J Loya death case.

Rai, who was accompanied by Bihar BJP vice president Devesh Kumar, said that Congress party did not stop raising accusing fingers despite the late Judge’s family stating that he died of heart attack.

Referring to the Supreme Court’s judgement in Judge B H Loya’s death case yesterday, Rai said that the PIL filed for probe into Loya death was a politically motivated one and part of conspiracy against BJP chief for maligning his image. “Congress and its allies hatched a conspiracy to malign the image of our party president Amit Shah. With the apex court judgement in Judge Loya death case, it has been clearly established that Congress has been indulging in dirty and cheap politics and also conpired to tarnish his (Shah) image… Congress and its allies should tender apology from our party president,” Rai told reporters here.

Notably, the judge B H Loya was hearing Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter cass- in which BJP chief Amit Shah was among the accused- when he died of a heart attack in 2014. The BJP chief was later discharged by the judge who replaced Loya.
