Lalitgate: Congress's silence is not required, what is required is answers of these 7 burning questions?
With each passing day new exposures and details are being revealed in Lalit Modi case, renamed by the Congress Party as -"Lalitgate". Congress party first targeted BJP leader Sushma Swaraj for helping the wife of Lalit Modi on humanitarian grounds, who was fighting with cancer. However, many leaders from the non-BJP parties came out openly in support of Sushma Swaraj and even appreciated the gesture shown by her on humanitarian grounds.

When the Congress party was isolated on Sushma, it decided to target Rajasthan Chief Minister Vashundhara Raje based on some papers leaked in the media. The major grudge of the Congress party was that why any type of "help" or "humanitarian assistance" was provided to Lalit Modi who is a big criminal.

The Congress party was very happy and enjoying the media attention till now. But, their happiness was suddenly curtailed when Lalit Modi himself confirmed that even Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra met him. Now the BJP was asking the questions and the reply of the Congress Party was that it was no crime to meet Lalit Modi.

Clearly, the party was caught red handed while adopting the double standards. When the names of Priyanka and Robert Vadra were not exposed by Lalit Modi, the party was calling Lalit Modi as a criminal and once the names of Congress leaders were out, party changed its stand that it is no crime if someone meets Lalit Modi.

Aam Aadmi Party, simply started following the Congress blindly asking the resignations of Vasundhara Raje and Sushma Swaraj, without applying its own mind on the whole issue. This party even otherwise was looking for some excuse to divert the attention of the people of Delhi from the failures of its governance. The Congress gave them the "poorly cooked" issue of "Lalitgate" on the platter and the Kejriwal Government accepted the same without any hesitation, simply with a view to target the Narendra Modi Government.

But, party, suddenly felt the shock when another exposure came from Lalit Modi that AAP Leader Rahul Mehra had written an e-mail asking certain favors from Lalit Modi. As the copy of the e-mail was also made public, AAP was left red-faced with great shame and humiliation.

Now, both these parties are looking for some excuse to somehow, come out of this web created by them to trap the Modi Government. However, before they are allowed to get out of this mess created by them, the people of this country want to know the answers of few questions from the Congress party:

  1. Under which party's rule Lalit Modi was allowed to become the IPL Chief from an ordinary businessman?

  2. Why Congress leaders like Kapil Sibbal, Priyanka and Robert Vadra kept meeting Lalit Modi, when the party feels that he is a "big criminal"?

  3. The passport of Lalit Modi was restored by High Court when Congress Party was in power. Why the Congress did not appeal against the High Court order in Supreme Court, if the party was of the view that Lalit Modi is a "big criminal"?

  4. None of the Courts in India has ever convicted Lalit Modi in any case. If the party thinks that Lalit Modi is a "big criminal", why it could not prove this "criminality" to the Courts?

  5. When Lalit modi was forced to leave the Country, he was IPL chief. After he left the country Congress leader Rajiv Shukla was made the IPL chief. Whether Lalit Modi was intentionally allowed to leave the country so that Congress leader Rajiv Shukla could grab this position?

  6. While restoring the passport of Lalit Modi, three High Court judges made the observation that the "Passport of Lalit Modi was wrongly revoked by the Congress Government". Is this observation from three High Court judges is a slap on the face of the Congress Government?

  7. All the transactions and activities which were done between Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Lalit Modi, they were done when there was Congress Government, both in Rajasthan and at the Centre? Why Congress has brought up this issue now and why it was sleeping when everything was happening, under its own rule?

Since this issue of "Lalitgate" is the sole creation of Congress party, it is duty bound to reply all these questions so that the people of this country could also know the whole truth and Congress is not allowed to mislead the nation, in the manner and style, it was doing for the last 60 years of its misrule.

The questions raised need no repeat here. I don’t know if the scribe is defending BJP or Lalit Modi or both. However, it would be interesting to mention tat the BCCI's disciplinary committee has found Lalit Modi, the former IPL chairman, guilty on eight different charges of "various acts of indiscipline and misconduct". In his reaction to the report, Modi had alleged that Arun Jaitley had a bias against him and also was the "strongest supporter" of N Srinivasan, the BCCI president. Modi said one of his main lines of defense was that the enquiry against him was "vitiated on account of malafide" because he had opposed Srinivasan's conflict of interest as team owner and administrator. He claimed that Jaitley "did not allow any question to be put in respect of Srinivasan's conflict of interest and virtually skirted the issue of Srinivasan's conflict of interest in his report." His response to the committee's actual findings echoed his defence on the various charges. The 134-page report - prepared by a committee comprising senior BCCI functionaries Arun Jaitley, Chirayu Amin and Jyotiraditya Scindia - had been submitted to the BCCI. It is immaterial who was running the show that time. The politicians of like feathers flock together. There is list of crimes against several BJP top leaders and Lalit Modi which are enhancing exponentially with the new disclosures every day. If the people in Congress Party had made mistakes, they were already punished. If that is not enough, the NDA government should come out in open and penalize the individuals who were responsible for crimes, mistakes, lapses and abetment. Why to shield anyone? Why so much energy is wasted on someone who has run away from the country in the name of Humanity? Why so many extra miles to help him enjoy the gala time with the beauties and sweeties around???Why there is the eerie silence at the top? And if Lalit is innocent than speak loudly.
