Press Trust of India

Posted: Mar 24, 2002 at 2109 hrs IST

Condemning the Godhra train attack as well as subsequent communal disturbances in Gujarat, Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee on Sunday asserted that violence in the state must come to an end.

"Gujarat incidents have tarnished the image of the country and violence in the state must stop," Vajpayee said.

He said the culprits of Godhra incident had been arrested and would be dealt with firmly and a Commission had been appointed to inquire into violent incidents which followed.

Vajpayee said his government did not discriminate with anyone on the basis of religion and all the people living in the country were treated alike and enjoyed equal rights.
