Lalit Modi targets Varun Gandhi
New Delhi: Scam tainted former IPL chief Lalit Modi today sought to drag BJP leader Varun Gandhi in the Lalitgate controversy alleging that a deal was offered to settle matters with Sonia Gandhi, which Varun dubbed as “baseless” and “nonsense”.
In a series of tweets, Lalit Modi has alleged, “Mr @varungandhi80 came to see me at my house a few years ago and said he can settle everything in @INCIndia with his aunt. He wanted me to meet her sister from italy….”
Vehemently denying the charge, Varun told PTI, “This is absolutely baseless and it is beneath my dignity to respond to this nonsense.”
The BJP has also come to Varun’s defence, saying he is in a different party than Sonia Gandhi.
“Varun Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi are in different parties and the world knows about the ties between the two families, BJP Spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.
Modi further tweeted, “Please mr @varungandhi80 – let the world know what you told about what auntie wants – witness is our good friend world renowned astrologer.
“Please clarify @varungandhi80 did u or did u not come to my house in london. Whilst staying at the Ritz hotel in lon(don) a few years ago – the auntie he refers to is #soniagandhi. The sister is #soniagandhi sister – just for clarity.”
