Congress to protest against Vasundhara Raje
The Congress party on Wednesday will hold a protest against Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhra Raje demanding her resignation over latter's involvement in former IPL chief Lalit Modi row.
Addressing the media yesterday, Congress leader Sachin Pilot had said that he will be a part of the protest lead by the party.
"The Congress party will be in the streets tomorrow demanding Chief Minister Raje's resignation. I too will be there. The leaders in BJP and other parties openly say investigation must be there and these people must step down to allow a fair investigation," he said.
"She (CM Vasundhara Raje) must resign on moral and legal grounds to give way to clear investigation," he added.
Meanwhile, Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari had earlier in the week met Raje and said that the BJP as well as the Centre are strongly behind her as "accusations" against the Rajasthan Chief Minister have "no substance".
The senior BJP leader also insisted that Raje had done no wrong and said that such issues should not be brought into politics.
