Will allow House proceedings only if Sushma reveals money trail: Rahul

Will allow House proceedings only if Sushma reveals money trail: Rahul

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Monday declared that Parliament would function only after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj disclosed the monetary benefits her family received from former IPL boss Lalit Modi.

Rahul’s remark came after Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav’s aborted attempts to turn peacemaker between the Congress and the government.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s praise of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan at a rally in Gaya further riled the Congress.

“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 Swarajji, the chief minister of Rajasthan and the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh have carried out in some cases of illegal acts. In Madhya Pradesh, there are murders happening and our Prime Minister does not feel it necessary to comment on them,” Rahul said outside Parliament.

The Congress vice-president also said he has asked a specific question to Swaraj that there are financial transfers that have taken place between Lalit Modi and her family.
