New Delhi: Congress spokesman RS Sujrewala has on Friday asked PM Narendra Modi to bring back Lalit Modi, the former IPL Chairman embroiled in allegations of money laundering. “PM should tell us when he will get Lalit Modi back into the country,” he said.
Earlier today it was reported that UPA in 2013 had asked the United Kingdom to deport Lalit Modi. Former Finance Minister P Chideambaram had requested UK to deport him as he had a lot of cases pending were against him. “UPA wanted Lalit Modi to be brought back so that his case can be expedited,” said Surjewala.
Surjewala charged BJP led government’s EAM Sushma Swaraj of hurting India’s case to get Lalit Modi back. “Our deportation case was annulled when our EAM helped him get travel documents.
“We demand PM to give a statement on his ministers aiding Lalit Modi, for him to sack EAM Sushma Swaraj and Vasundhara Raje,” he added.
