Amit Shah was arrested in connection with the Sohrabuddin case in 2010. He was charged with the murder, extortion and kidnapping among other charges.
When Shah applied for bail, the CBI raised concerns that he would use his political power to prevent justice from taking its course. The Gujarat High Court granted him bail three months after his arrest, on Friday, 29 October 2010. However, the next day, when the courts were closed, Justice Aftab Alam took a petition at his residence to bar him from entering Gujarat. Shah was thus forcibly exiled from the state from 2010 to 2012. He and his wife moved to a room in Gujarat Bhavan, Delhi. Later, the Supreme Court canceled his bail on a CBI plea. In September 2012, the Supreme Court granted him bail, and allowed him to return to Gujarat.
Amit Shah, now the BJP President has decided to make Venkaiah Naidu, Vice President of India. Naidu is contesting as NDA candidate.
Congress party and it’s allies have decided to field Gopal Krishna Gandhi for Vice President post. He is the grandson of Mahatama Gandhi, a retired IAS officer and diplomat, who was the 22nd Governor of West Bengal serving from 2004 to 2009. As a former IAS officer he served as Secretary to the President of India and as High Commissioner to South Africa and Sri Lanka, among other administrative and diplomatic posts. Rajaji-C.Rajagopala Chari is his maternal grand father.
Since BJP has majority of electoral votes, Venkaiah Naidu has fair chances to win the election unless voters decide to make Gandhi, the vice president not Godse.
