Lalit Modi takes to Twitter to bash senior leaders

NEW DELHI: Former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi used Twitter to target several senior leaders, including finance minister Arun Jaitley, former BCCI president N Srinivasan and the Congress party.

His main accusation was that the leaders regularly approached him for favours in times of need.

Modi further used the micro-blogging site to call Arun Jaitley a “Congressman at heart”.
He also tweeted a picture of Jaitley with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, his sister Priyanka and her husband Robert Vadra to give an evidence of his closeness with Nehru-Gandhis.

He challenged Jaitley to make his phone records public, and alleged that he was working with Srinivasan.

Threatening a “big expose”, Modi said, “This is true that crores of rupees are booked by BCCI for members’ TA/DA. Best part is they take this in cash. Hope Arun Jaitley, Anurag Thakur and Rajiv Shukla have shown this in their returns… Media, ED and income tax must ask Taj Hotels to provide data of all politicians who have stayed with them (sic).”, reported a national daily.

In what looked like an effort to put the blame of financial irregularities on the BCCI governing council, Modi said, “Facts show all decisions made by treasury run by Srini (Srinivasan) on advice of legal counsel Arun (Jaitley). So poor is the knowledge of all that the notices to the entire BCCI governing council while I am the only witness who gave ED the material (sic).”

He challenged DGCA to disclose the passenger manifest and expressed the desire to know if Congress MPs had sought to place their sons in IPL

In an indirect attack on former finance minister P Chidambaram, Modi alleged that he and his son had sought favours from him.

“I have records for each and every ticket, seat wise — what value it was and who paid for it, in cash or through cheque or free,” he reportedly said.

“I have my hands tied behind my back and mouth gagged and proof taken away. Best part is, I’ve not been charged by any court or any agency; only by media.”, said Modi, evidently defending himself.

“I did not start this war. But I am master of the art of war, so don’t blame me for collateral damage, that’s just what war does (sic),” he tweeted.
