In the city to oversee the arrangements for Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s October 9 rally in Aligarh, Mistry said, “Why do Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan or Chhattisgarh chief minister Raman Singh not keep accusing CBI of something or the other? It is only Modi who does that. This is because the other two are clean, but Modi is trying to create in anti-CBI atmosphere as his role in the fake encounters of Gujarat is going to be exposed soon.”

Talking to media persons later, Mistry said Rahul Gandhi was going to launch his campaign for the 2014 elections from Aligarh because last time he was here during the Tappal agaitation, he had promised to get the Land Acquisition Bill passed.

He has kept that promise and therefore Aligarh is the best place to start his campaign from.
