Shweta Bhatt, the wife of suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, today announced that she will contest the state Assembly elections on a Congress ticket against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi from Maninagar constituency in the city.

“Yes, I will be fighting against Modi from Maninagar on a Congress ticket,” Shweta Bhatt said.

“We have moved far away from democracy in Gujarat and to restore it, everyone has to do whatever they can. Fighting elections against Modi is the logical step in our quest for democracy and to curb anti-democratic forces,” she said.

Shweta said she will be filing her nomination papers shortly.

Sanjiv Bhatt, in an affidavit in the Supreme Court last year, had alleged complicity on the part of Modi in the 2002 riots. He also deposed against Modi before the Nanavati Commission, probing the riots.

Bhatt, who was the Principal, SRP Training School, was later suspended by the State Government.
