Lalit Modi controversy: Govindacharya asks govt to help people not a `particular person`

RSS ideologue K.N. Govindacharya

New Delhi, June 27: RSS ideologue K.N. Govindacharya on Saturday asserted that the Narendra Modi-led NDA government should have a bi-focal vision, and said that politics should help the people and not a ‘particular person’.

Govindacharya reportedly said: “I think the government should have a bi-focal vision. Politics should help people not particular person.”

The BJP, which has been defending External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj despite opposition demands that she be sacked for helping Lalit Modi, was hit with another worry last week when the former IPL boss claimed that Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje secretly supported his immigration plea in Britain.

The opposition mounted pressure on Raje after the emergence of a letter reportedly carrying her signature, in which she backs Lalit Modi’s application in the UK.

Congress leader Pramod Tiwari questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence over the controversy surrounding former IPL boss Lalit Modi saying that

“What is the reason for the Prime Minister’s silence on the whole matter? The nation wants to know why he isn’t saying anything over the issue,” asked Tiwari.

The BJP, however, asserted that the Congress is not doing its home-work before demanding the resignations of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj over the Lalit Modi row.

“The Congress party has not done its home-work and they are demanding resignations of BJP leaders,” said BJP spokesperson Shrikant Sharma.

Meanwhile, embattled Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje attended a NITI Aayog deliberation here on Saturday but left the capital without meeting either Prime Minister Narendra Modi or BJP chief Amit Shah.

Raje, who has been facing mounting opposition pressure to quit in connection with the ‘Lalitgate’, arrived at around 9:30 AM and left the city after spending close to four hours.

Party sources were tight-lipped on whether the Rajasthan Chief Minister had sought any appointment to meet either the Prime Minister or the party President.
