Modi does not need a certificate from anyone: BJP on WikiLeaks

Mar 18, 2014 09:51 AM IST Politics Politics

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party hit back at whistle-blower WikiLeaks and said that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi does not need a certificate from anyone.

BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain said, "Narendra Modi does not need a certificate from anyone. People know he has been a true chief minister in Gujarat and he will serve the people of the country truthfully when he becomes the Prime Minister."

WikiLeaks had on Monday clarified that the US diplomatic cables released by it in 2011 never described Modi as "incorruptible" or "the lone honest Indian politician".

"India: No WikiLeaks document say #Modi is 'incorruptable', rather he is popular because 'viewed' as 'incorruptable' (sic)", WikiLeaks tweeted.

The BJP PM candidates' supporters have been circulating posters which quote Assange as saying America is scared of Modi because he is incorruptible. WikiLeaks has said that they merely called the BJP's PM nomiee popular and perceived by Indians as incorruptible.

Instead WikiLeaks said that the "incorruptable" quote comes from Rajkot Congress party leader Manoharsinh Jadeja.

"Modi's accomplishments are undeniable," and admitted that the Congress would make little headway against the BJP in Gujarat anytime soon. Modi is extremely popular, Jadeja said, and even Muslims are now supporting him to some extent because he is viewed as someone who is completely incorruptible and can deliver the goods. Consul General asked if Modi could become a national BJP leader, and Jadeja said he hoped so because as long," Jadeja had written.
