At a time when there is talk about Modi's projection also as a backward face of BJP in the next Lok Sabha polls, the Congress said that the attempt is being made to cover up the killing of Tulsiram Prajapati, a person belonging to backward community, in an alleged fake encounter by those, who play political games in the name of OBC.
    
"The facts, which have been shown in the CD are very serious and important. This is an attempt to influence the judicial process. The matter should be investigated by the CBI and till the probe is over, Modi should not remain in office. He should resign. How can he remain Chief Minister when such allegations have come out," AICC Communication Department Chairman Ajay Maken told reporters in New Delhi at a special briefing.
    
The Congress briefing came a day after a PIL was filed in the Supreme Court against BJP MPs Prakash Javdekar and Bhupendra Singh Yadav, wherein, it has been alleged that they tried to impede investigation in Prajapati fake encounter case, in which former Gujarat home minister Amit Shah is the prime accused.
    
Maken was accompanied by PL Puniya, who is also the Chairman of National Commission for Scheduled Castes.

Puniya said that since it was his mandate to look into the issues concerning backward castes, he took up the matter when people from the most backward Prajapati community came to him with the CD, complaining of an attempt by BJP leaders to
influence investigation and judicial process in the case.
    
"The people from Prajapati community, who came to me were quite angry over the fact that while on one hand, a member belonging to their community was killed and now efforts are being made to influence the process of investigation and the proceedings in the court. Prajapatis are most most backward castes. We will take action into the matter and send a copy of the CD to CBI. I would ask the agency to bring it to the notice of the Supreme Court," Punia said.
