Gujarat CM steps back, says he "never released" news against Congress leader Gohil

In a clear bid to strike a compromise with senior Gujarat Congress leader Shaktisinh Gohil, state chief minister Vijay Rupani has said that he has “not released" any news against Gohil, “nor managed the release in any way”. The news related to Rupani’s public statement, where he had accused Gohil for being responsible for recent attacks on people from other states in Gujarat.
Rupani’s decision comes through his lawyer, who in his reply to Gohil’s defamation notice served recently said, “Our client had no intention to cause any damage to your prestige”. Gohil served his preliminary notice on October 18, 2018 and final notice on December 10, 2018 demanding an explanation from Rupani, even as threatening of civil and criminal suit.
Gohil also wrote Rupani that BJP MLAs, leaders and workers were directly responsible for attack on outsiders in Gujarat, claiming he has evidence of this.
“With this the matter is close”, Gohil has said in a statement.
