Congress leader Sachin Pilot on Wednesday said that Vasundhara Raje has no moral right to remain as Rajasthan’s Chief Minister as she was involved in acquiring documents for former IPL chief Lalit Modi, who is an absconder of law.
“The fact, that the current Chief Minister of Rajasthan was fully involved in acquiring documents for Mr. Lalit Modi who is an absconder of law, who has done multiple violations of Foreign Exchange Act who has served notices on many fronts. Someone like that is being helped by the Chief Minister of Rajasthan is now out in public,” he told ANI.
“The Pradesh Congress Committee has met this afternoon and has unanimously demanded that she must step down with her resignation. She has no moral authority to remain the Chief Minister of Rajasthan,” he added.
The Congress leader also asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to break his silence on the issue.
“I think the facts that have now come to light clearly indicate that there are people high up in the BJP and the Prime Minister must break his silence and tell this nation whether he stands with people who generate black money, who were involved in illegal transactions or he is willing to protect such people,” he said.
In more trouble for the BJP which has been defending External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj so far despite opposition demands that she be sacked for helping Lalit Modi, the former IPL boss has claimed that Raje secretly supported his immigration plea in Britain.
