D G Vanzara, suspended Gujarat police official
“I have been maintaining graceful silence for such a long period because of my supreme faith and respect for Narendra Modi whom I adore like God. But I am sorry to state that my God could not rise to the occasion under the evil influence of Shri Amitbhai Shah who usurped his eyes and ears…”
“In the hurry of marching towards Delhi, Modi should not forget to the police officials who had allowed him to earn the impression of being tough on crime.
“I have a moral justification to expose real culprits behind the encounter cases. Officers, Crime Branch officers, Anti-Terrorism Squad and Border Range during 2002-2007 simply acted and performed their duties in compliance of the conscious policy of this government.” “I along with my officers stood beside the state government like a Bulwark whenever it faced existential crisis in the past. It was expected of the government to reciprocate and stand firmly with us with a similar vigour and determination which to my utter shock and surprise did not happen.”
