BJP had lost its moral right to rule Gujarat after SC's order to shift out the Best Bakery case, a Congress spokesman said.

BJP and Chief Minister Narendra Modi have lost "all moral right" to rule Gujarat in the light of the dismissal of an application filed by the state government seeking review of its order in the Best Bakery case, Congress said on Friday.

The apex Court expressed strong displeasure over the filing of the application by the State Government asking for a review of the order, party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters.

"BJP and its Chief Minister Narendra Modi have lost all moral rights to rule Gujarat," he said.

"Such an application only shows a reckless attitude and mental approach of the Gujarat Government," Singhvi said.

Assailing the BJP for the "misuse" of position by constitutional functionaries appointed by it, he cited a pamphlet in which the Chairman of the Minorities Commission Tarlochan Singh had made an appeal for supporting the South Delhi candidate V K Malhotra in the May ten Lok Sabha polls.

Singh's appeal comes close on the suggestions made by Haryana and Rajasthan Governors Babu Parmanand and Madan Lal Khurana for support to BJP candidates in elections, he said.

These constitutional authorities were "shamelessly" coming out openly in support of BJP candidates, he said, adding "We strongly condemn this and we will take action under the law."
