Congress leader Sachin Pilot on Tuesday said Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje must resign on moral and legal grounds, to allow for a clear investigation into her alleged links with former IPL boss Lalit Modi.
“The BJP is saying that till the time documents aren’t verified, they won’t ask CM Raje to step down. But who will verify them?,” asked Pilot.
“She (CM Vasundhara Raje) must resign on moral and legal grounds to give way to clear investigation,” he added.
Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari had yesterday met Raje and said that the BJP as well as the Centre are strongly behind her as “accusations” against the Rajasthan Chief Minister have “no substance”.
The senior BJP leader also insisted that Raje had done no wrong and said that such issues should not be brought into politics.
