New Delhi, June 26 (ANI): Taking note of the so called ‘accidental meeting’ of Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra with Lalit Modi, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday alleged that Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law was trying to weaken and soften cases on the former IPL chief.
“The Congress Party simply cannot get away, saying there was no discussion, there was no interaction by Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra in their so called ‘accidental meeting’ with Lalit Modi,” BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao told ANI here.
“Everyone knows that Robert Vadra is a businessman, who is involved in shady deals, shady transactions. So, was he involved in any business transactions with Lalit Modi or was Vadra trying to weaken and soften cases on Lalit Modi by having certain kind of transactions with him? These are questions that are naturally bound to arise because of the shady character of the people involved and Congress’ history of indulging in such transactions,” he added.
Narasimha Rao further said it was high time that the Congress Party came out clean on the matter.
In a three-part tweet, the former IPL commissioner said he was “happy to meet the Gandhi family in London” and that he had bumped into Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s daughter Priyanka Gandhi and her husband Robert Vadra at a restaurant.
But in another tweet, he revealed that the meeting was last year.
“If I remember correctly it was last year and the year before. Doubt either reported it to anyone. They were in power then,” he tweeted. (ANI)
