Coming down heavily against the Union government in general and BJP in particular, senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh has accused senior BJP leaders to be in the nexus with former IPL boss Lali Modi.
‚ÄúThis is an issue of a nexus between a proclaimed offender against whom the Enforcement Directorate has cases pending and PM Narendra Modi, foreign minister Sushma Swaraj , Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje and the BJP President Amit Shah,‚ÄĚ he said.
Congress in its statement has said ‚Äúthe Lalit Modi-Adani nexus has been clearly established by the documents in the domain. This nexus took shape when the PM was the President of the Gujarat Cricket Association and blossomed when Amit Shah took over.‚ÄĚ
Opposition parties including CPM, JDU have asked PM Modi to break his silence on the matter. Clarifying JD-U‚Äôs stand on Sushma-Lalit row, party president Sharad Yadav had already told media that ‚ÄúIPL is a hub of corruption and the whole system is a part of it. The system has been worsening day by day. The PM must give an answer to the ‚Äėache din‚Äô promises made to the people.‚ÄĚ
