“I am asking the PM to bring back Lalit Modi. This is a big opportunity for him (Modi). Let him bring back Lalit Modi and clear all the scam in cricket,” Rahul told the media in parliament complex.

“I am here to defend this country from the RSS, I am here to defend this country from Narendra Modi,” Gandhi said.

“I want to tell Modiji that the youth is slowly understanding the nexus (between black money and the political system).”

Gandhi added that the prime minister had “no guts”.

“After losing the election against him, I thought he (Modi) was a strong guy. But now I think he is not,” he said, before heading to join a protest by Congress members against the government.
