New Delhi: Former Delhi Chief Minister and Congress' CM face in Uttar Pradesh, Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is shying away from an independent and a thorough probe into the alleged Sahara-Birla papers.

Why is @PMOIndia shying from an independent and a thorough probe into the #BirlaSaharaPapers?

The former Delhi CM took to Twitter on Monday and said: I have said what I had to. The ball is in the court of the @PMOIndia & others now. Will he respond and come out clean?"

Sheila Dikshit on Sunday strongly denied the charges and trashed the documents, saying the Supreme Court has already made its observations on them. She said she has nothing to do with the issue and refused to speak further saying the matter is sub-judice.

I have said what I had to. The ball is in the court of the @PMOIndia & others now. Will he respond and come out clean? #SaharaBirlaDiaries
