Lalit Modi row: Congress to protest against Vasundhara Raje in Jaipur:
He said, “She (CM Vasundhara Raje) must resign on moral and legal grounds to give way to clear investigation.” According to Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari had earlier in the week 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 added his view that Raje had done no wrong and said that such issues should not be brought into politics. He told reporters in Jaipur. “The PM’s words — Na Khaunga Na Khane Dunga [neither will I take the bribe nor will I allow anyone to take bribe — have come to haunt him. He is losing political capital and he and his party have been fully exposed. BJP is obstinate on this issue, but we will not let the issue die down.”
