Arun Jaitley will come out with flying colors in DDCA issue: PM Modi

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi supported Finance Minister Arun Jaitley saying that the latter will come out of DDCA corruption charges with “flying colours”, a senior minister said.

The Congress is raking up manufactured allegations to defame the government,” Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu quoted Modi as saying at a BJP parliamentary party meeting.

“They tried the same with Sushma-ji, Vasundhara-ji and Shivraj-ji… they (the
Congress) only want to defame the government,” he quoted Modi as saying.

BJP MP Kirti Azad, who had levelled corruption charges again Jaitley, did not attend the meeting.

Azad told reporters he could not attend the meeting due to “prior engagement” and did not boycott the meeting.

Jaitley had denied corruption charges levelled against him by the Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress regarding the DDCA, which he headed for 13 years till 2013.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje were targetted by the opposition in the past over their alleged help for financial dealings with former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi.
