Rahul also enjoyed hospitality: Lalit
Congress leader Ajay Maken said Lalit Modi was trying to help the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. Lalit Modi late Friday posted on Twitter a couple of his pictures with Rahul Gandhi and Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, in the same frame.
Modi tweeted: “I hope @OfficeOfRG (office of Rahul Gandhi) informed @INCIndia that he was a beneficiary of my hospitality. He sat in my box.”
The picture, which appears to be from an IPL match, also has Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, his wife Gauri Khan and actress Deepika Padukone along with others. Modi also asked if they (Rahul Gandhi and Vadra) had declared it to the Congress leadership.Modi, who has been described as a “fugitive” by the Congress and is wanted by the Enforcement Directorate for alleged financial impropriety, tweeted: “My Q to #rahulgandhi and #robertvadra did you ever receive any hospitality from @lalitkmodi - and did u declare it to @INCIndia #lalitgate.”
Congress spokesperson Maken, however, accused Lalit Modi of trying to help the BJP through the pictures. “Chotta Modi is trying to help Bada Modi by tweeting images to help the ruling party,” Maken said.
Posting the photographs, Lalit Modi also said they were not altered. Lalit Modi also tweeted in <g data-gr-id="33">response</g> of a tweeter handler: “That will never happen I am not into politics. But <g data-gr-id="32">a NGO</g> next stop. And never Modi vs Modi. Modi vs Gandhi yes.”
