Media reports baseless, says Vasundhara Raje’s office

Jaipur, June 25 (IANS) The office of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Thursday accused some TV channels of “constantly running” baseless and false news on her alleged links with former IPL chief Lalit Modi.

“Some electronic channels are constantly running reports far away from the truth. These reports are completely baseless and are unsubstantiated. Verify reports before running them. Do not run stories which are unsubstantiated or based on rumours which may tarnish image of the chief minister,” said the statement issued here by the chief minister’s press advisor.

A second statement later said some TV channels were carrying “misleading reports” about 110 legislators coming out in support of Raje.

The statement quoted some media reports that said “Vasundhara resignation sought, Vasundhara bluntly refuses to resign”, “Party will be in a mess or problems if I am asked to quit”, “Ministers and MLAs are gathering at CM house”, and “Chief minister going to Delhi and (Health Minister) Rajendra Rathore going to Delhi”.

“These reports are baseless. These are not true. Please verify and confirm the report before running any such news report,” the statement said.

However, the chief minister herself was yet to come forward to speak to the media.
