Rajasthan don't want CM who is involved in corruption: Congress
The Congress party on Thursday called for Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to resign, adding that the people of the state do not want somebody at the top post who is involved in corruption.
"Before coming to power, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said - 'Na khaoonga, na khane doonga' (nor will I take bribes, nor will I allow anyone else to). Today, his ministers are supporting criminals. Why not use the same scale that you use for other people? The Prime Minister needs to break his silence. The Rajasthan Chief Minister needs to resign," Congress leader Sachin Pilot told ANI.
"The CBI should probe this issue, but only after the ministers resign from their post. The people of Rajasthan don't want a CM who is involved in corruption," he added.
In more trouble for the BJP which has been defending External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj so far despite opposition demands that she be sacked for helping Lalit Modi, the former IPL boss has claimed that Raje secretly supported his immigration plea in Britain.
Since this information came to light, the opposition has been clamouring for Raje's resignation.
