New Delhi: The BJP on Friday stood firmly behind Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, saying that the authenticity of the documents being cited to show that she had helped former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi are not verified.

“Vasundhara has never denied her close family relations with Lalit Modi and the validity of those documents which were produced is yet to be verified,” BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi said at a press conference.

Raje is embroiled in a controversy over allegations that she testified in favour of Lalit Modi’s British immigration application in 2011 and Modi made investments in her son’s company.

“It is not corruption either technically or legally…The Opposition is not able to debate with the government on positive issues, so they are blowing this out of proportion. I want to ask under which government’s rule did the Lalit Modi corruption case was discovered,” said Trivedi.

Rejecting the Opposition’s demand for Raje’s resignation, Trivedi said there was no truth in the charges against Raje.

“Is there any substantive evidence? Is there any corruption?” he added.

“As far as Dushyant Singh’s case is concerned, all these facts given in I.T. returns and election affidavit are already in the public domain,” he added.

Dushyant is a BJP MP from Jhalawar-Baran constituency in Rajasthan.

The BJP continued to defend Sushma Swaraj as well for her alleged role in extending help to the former IPL chief procure travelling documents.

“Our president has already spoken on the issue and that’s the stand of the party. Union ministers Arun Jaitley and Rajnath Singh have also clarified the stand. After their comments, there is nothing more to add,” Trivedi told media persons when asked about Swaraj’s alleged help to Lalit Modi.

Sushma Swaraj had allegedly helped Lalit Modi in procuring documents to travel to Portugal last year for his cancer-stricken wife’s treatment.

Earlier in the day, Raje cancelled her visit to Anandpur Sahib in Punjab, citing health reasons.

She was to share the dias with BJP president Amit Shah and Home Minister Rajnath Singh there.

However, a BJP leader informed on the condition of anonymity that she cancelled her programme after a message from Amit Shah’s office. (IANS)

The recent controversy created by the AAP’s (Aam Aadmi Party) elected MLA has shaken the whole of the administrative department. The body representing bureaucrats has come up in full force to protest against the atrocities done by AAP members.

One of the two legislators who had allegedly attacked Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, Amanatullah Khan yesterday surrendered at Jamia Nagar police station.

Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP’s goon inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.

Police have apprehended the second AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal on Tuesday night itself.

The assault of the government official has created a furore among fellow colleges and they have demanded an unconditional apology from Arvind Kejriwal.

Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP's goons inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.
Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP’s goons inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.

The crisis has led Home Minister, Rajnath Singh to intervene in this matter and hence a report is sought from Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on the same.

The AAP is trying to paint the whole scenario in some other way by calling it a nefarious design by BJP (Bhartiya Janta Party). But it is quite evident from the facts that AAP is trying to hide its heinous face by blaming BJP for all this fiasco.

Police have confirmed the assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash. Thus, it leaves us in no doubt that AAP party members have got the thirst for power in their head and they are claiming themselves above the law and order. It is the same government which promised the Delhi people to revolutionize the whole system but the current developments are pointing the needle towards raw craving for power and money by the Arvind Kejriwal led government.
