Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi will undertake a two-day visit of Rajasthan from July 16-17.
The twitter account of Rahul Gandhi confirmed the news saying, “Rahul Gandhi will be in Rajasthan on a two day visit on 16th &17th of July.”
His visit is likely to put pressure over the BJP, which has remained unmoved despite the growing clamour for the resignation of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.
Raje has been in hot soup ever since a document purportedly carrying her signature to back former IPL chief Lalit Modi’s immigration plea in the United Kingdom (UK) surfaced.
Lalit Modi, who has denied any wrongdoings, was suspended as chairman and commissioner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in April 2010, soon after the third edition of the Twenty20 League.
He moved to London in 2010 after being embroiled in match fixing and illegal betting. The government has issued red alert, look-out notice against him since then. The Enforcement Directorate has also been investigating the charges against him.
