“Narendra Modi needs no apology for 2002 post-Godhra riots. He has been given clean chit by the judiciary,” Salman, who plays an aam aadmi in his recent film Jai Ho, said in an interview to a news channel.

I wish Modi gets what he deserves: Salman

Further, praising Modi’s governance, Salman said, “I have seen (Gujarat) people are happy in his regime.”

He, however, refused to extend support to ‘any’ leader for the post for prime ministership saying, “If I take support anyone’s candidature for the top post, my entire fan following will support his/her. And that would be very injustice for others.”

When asked to comment on the controversy erupted over Safai Mahotsava in Uttar Pradesh, Salman said, “No one needs to preach me what I need to do and what not.”
