Rahul Gandhi today said Congress will allow Parliament to function only after External Affair Minister Sushma Swaraj discloses her family’s financial transactions with Lalit Modi and hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for praising chief ministers of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan while remaining silent on their “illegal” acts.
The Congress Vice President attacked Swaraj for being “secretly” kind and charitable to Lalit Modi, whom he termed as a criminal, and asked her to tell the country how much money she and her family “have received” in their bank accounts from the former IPL chief.
“We also agree that Parliament must function. But, we have raised a basic issue. We have said, and I have said it three times, Sushma Swaraj ji, the chief minister of Rajasthan and the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh have carried out in some cases illegal acts. In Madhya Pradesh there are murders happening and our Prime Minister does not feel it necessary to comment on them.
