New Delhi, July 1: RSS ideologue K. N. Govindacharya on Wednesday said that Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje must resign from her post on moral grounds.
Govindacharya said: “Raje must resign on moral grounds.”
Earlier on Saturday, the RSS ideologue had urged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to take a principled stand on its leaders instead of trying to give legal excuses.
Govindacharya had 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 on Tuesday persisted with its demand for the sacking of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, saying there was a “criminal nexus” between her family and former IPL boss Lalit Modi.
Party leader Jairam Ramesh said: “There has been a criminal nexus between Lalit Modi and the Vasundhara Raje family.”
