When the BJP's prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi was specifically asked why he had not apologised for the  post-Godhra riots that occurred under his watch as the chief minister of Gujarat, he dodged the contentious question and instead asked the Congress party to account for its sins [in an apparent reference to 1984 anti-Silh riots] before seeking account from others.

I was an undecided voter. I was exploring my options. UPA II did not deserve another chance. Modi personally never gave me good vibes.
