PM Narendra Modi has promised to help Lalit Modi, alleges Congress

New Delhi(PTI): Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised to help former IPL chairman Lalit Modi in all cases registered against him by the Enforcement Directorate.

“I make this charge with full responsibility that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is helping Lalit Modi. My charge is that he has promised Lalit Modi, that he will be bailed out of all the cases in which he is being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate. Let Narendra Modi come out clean on this. The Congress Party has raised these questions repeatedly but the BJP has no answer,” he said while addressing a press conference in Hyderabad.

He also said that the Prime Minister does ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme but does not answer the basic questions, which have emerged in the last 15 days ever since the case of Lalit Modi has come to the fore. The Congress leader also said that the BJP only talks of morality and accountability but does not practice them.

“They talk of morality, they talk of accountability but when it comes to morality and accountability to be practiced by the BJP they say that what we say is the absolute truth and all others are lying,” he added.

He further lashed out at Union Home Affairs Minister Rajnath Singh over his ‘arrogant’ assertion that none of the NDA ministers would resign.

“And the arrogance of Rajnath Singh to say that only ministers in UPA resigned the NDA ministers no matter what they do shall not resign. This is the arrogance which is related to a fascist character. This is the face of fascism which the BJP stands for,” he said.

A day ago, what seemed to be an attempt to appease the Centre, Lalit Modi heaped praises Prime Minister Narendra Modi by calling him the most savvy man.
