June 20, 2013 | Duration: 2 min, 35 sec
Just days after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was named the BJP's election campaign panel head for 2014, the party's Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parikkar has said the 2002 post-Godhra riots in Gujarat were a "clear-cut" case of "administrative failure" and "bad example of governance". On NDTV's Walk The Talk, Mr Parrikar says you cannot put the blame on one particular person. "You don't have to blame only the leader. And Modi probably at that time had just taken over the administration. He may not have had that kind of grip on the administration as he has now," he said.
