A TV Report said Godhra carnage was not pre-planned

Union Home Minister L K Advani today expressed surprise over a TV channel report that the Godhra carnage in Gujarat was not pre-planned and said he had already spoken to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in this regard.

"I was myself surprised, when I heard the TV report," Advani said on his arrival here on a two-day visit.

Replying to a question about the TV channel's conclusion about the Godhra incident, Advani said, "I have spoken to the Chief Minister and he will suitably react to it."

When pressed for his comments, he said, "how could he React, when investigations are still on to find out the truth."

"This is something on which I don't want to comment," the Home Minister said.

Advani is here to take part in a function to rename Port Blair airport as Veer Savarkar Airport. On his arrival here, he was received at the airport by Lt Governor N N Jha.

The Home Minister is scheduled to visit the Cellular Jail later in the day, where freedom fighter Veer Savarkar had spent more than a decade.
