Nobody should help Lalit Modi, says BJP MP

New Delhi, June 23 (IANS) A Bharatiya Janata Party parliamentarian on Tuesday said “no one should help an absconder like (former IPL chief) Lalit Modi”.

“Lalit Modi is an absconder and no one should help him. The government should file a case to revoke his passport,” member of Lok Sabha and former home secretary R.K. Singh told the media here.

“It is wrong on the part of others to help him. He should immediately be brought back as he is an offender. He should be ready to face the law,” he added.

The comment came a day after union Minister Nitin Gadkari backed Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhra Raje and dismissed charges against her of helping Modi by saying she was “completely right legally, logically and ethically”.

The BJP has also come forward in defence of its External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj who is being accused of helping Modi in getting British travel documents on “humanitarian grounds” to travel to Portugal in 2014 after his Indian passport stood revoked.

Singh, an MP from Arrah in Bihar, also took a jibe at Mumbai top police officer Rakesh Maria meeting Modi.

He said: “A police commissioner meeting an absconder is not correct.”

Maria had met Modi in London in July last year.

Raje is accused of testifying in favour of Modi’s British immigration application in 2011.

The Congress has been demanding the resignation of both Swaraj and Raje.
