New Delhi, June 29 (ANI): The Congress on Monday claimed that Narendra Modi had failed to address the Lalit Modi controversy on the recent edition of his Mann Ki Baat programme because the Prime Minister was ‘shielding’ the former IPL chief.
“When the UPA was in power, the BJP used to take jibes at Dr Manmohan Singh for keeping silent. Yesterday, when the Prime Minister did the Mann ki Baat programme, the entire country expected him to talk on the Lalit Modi controversy but ‘Bada’ Modi is shielding ‘Chhota’ Modi, which is why the Prime Minister chose to stay silent,” Congress leader PL Punia said.
When asked to comment on the issue of the RTI enquiry into Lalit Modi’s passport, Punia alleged that the government has no answers on the subject.
“The government cannot answer the RTI enquiry because their own minister is involved in it. They do not have any answers, so how can they reply to the RTI enquiry?” he said. (ANI)
