Government gives clean chit to Vasundhara Raje in Lalit Modi controversy: Sources

Meanwhile, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah to discuss the issue.

New Delhi: Centre on Friday gave clean chit to Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje after reviewing documents submitted by her in Lalit Modi controversy, sources said.

According to the sources, no wrong doing has been found in deals between Dushyant singh's Niyant Heritage and Lalit Modi's Ananda Heritage.

Earlier on Friday, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah to discuss the issue.

The Rajasthan unit of the BJP also came out in open support for the embattled Chief Minister who herself rubbished reports about a signature campaign by her to demonstrate backing of 120 MLAs.

"All allegations against Raje are baseless. By levelling such allegations, Congress is indulging political vendetta against her and targeting decades-old family relations between her and Lalit Modi," state unit president Ashok Parnami said.

He asserted that the BJP was fully with the Chief Minister who had been elected by the MLAs.

Raje also dismissed media reports about a signature campaign by 120 party MLAs in her support.

The government is currently facing Congress-led opposition heat over help extended by Raje and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to Lalit Modi regarding his travel documents in the UK.
