Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi has demanded Sushma Swaraj to resign for her involvement in arranging travel documents for controversial cricket administrator Lalit Modi.
Rahul said that when Modi became prime minister and promised to bring back the black money and when there is the question of another Modi who is a black money master, even if Sushma doesn’t resign, she should be sacked by Narendra Modi.
Despite the fact that Lalit Modi is wanted by the Enforcement Directorate on the charges of financial irregularities, Shushma has been accused of helping him get the travel documents. Lalit had fled to London and required travel papers to go to Portugal.
National Spokesperson of Congress Randeep Singh pointed towards not only the involvement of Sushma Swaraj but also BJp government’s aid with the tacit approval of PM Modi.
Randeep Singh has declared that PM Modi should explain his conduct to the people of nation as he has allegedly long relations with Lalit Modi
The Congress has put 11 questions on board before the government pertaining to relation between PM Modi, Amit Shah and Lait Modi and questioned the calling of Sushma’s involvement a humanitarian step. Congress has also questioned the stand of finance ministry, income tax department and enforcement directorate.
Though the allegation by Lok Sabha member Kirti Jha that someone from the party is involved in framing Sushma might aggravate the problem for BJP but BJP’s ideological mentor RSS ( Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh ) and home minister Rajnath Singh have publicly defended Swaraj.
Environment minister Prakash Javadekar said that there is no point in showing the picture of Lalit Modi and Narendra Modi taken in 2010 as at that time Lalit was not an accused and Narendra Modi was the Chief Minister of Gujarat. Javedkar instead turned the tables on Congress as it was under Congress rule that Lalit Modi had fled the country.
