BJP skips PM’s lunch, Congress is furious

While Amit Shah remained missing in Gujarat, where the CBI wants to question him for his alleged complicity in the murder of a Muslim man by senior police officers, the BJP’s senior-most leaders held a press conference in Delhi to state they would not attend a lunch at the Prime Minister’s home.

“The atmosphere would be too bitter,” said Sushma Swaraj, confirming that Nitin Gadkari, LK Advani, Arun Jaitley and she were boycotting the meal. (Watch: ‘Atmosphere too bitter’ to lunch with PM, says BJP)

The conversation at the lunch table, had the BJP chosen to attend, may have challenged the host’s famous diplomatic skills. In the last 48 hours, the CBI has moved with high velocity in Ahmedabad, filing a 30,000 page chargesheet against Shah, a minister and close aide of BJP Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

On Thursday, Shah was served a notice to meet the CBI by 1 pm. But he has not been an easy man to pin down this week. He has not been seen at his office, and skipped a cabinet meeting. When he was a no-show on Thursday afternoon, the CBI issued a second summon, giving him a deadline of 1 pm on Friday.

Shah surfaced only in the form of a statement faxed to the press – he declared his innocence, and said that by giving him little or no time to respond to its notice, the CBI was acting “with malice.” (Watch: Modi minister won’t meet CBI today, asks for more time)

In Delhi, his party’s tallest leaders said at their united press conference that the government was clearly using the CBI to target its political opponents. (Watch: Govt shamelessly misusing CBI, says Jaitley | Congress vs BJP on PM’s lunch)
