Vasundhara Raje washes away LaMo controversy, once again


Jaipur: Facing opposition heat over the Lalit Modi controversy, beleaguered Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje for the second day today dismissed media reports surrounding her, including that of a signature campaign by 120 party MLAs in her support. In a statement, a CMO spokesman said the Chief Minister holds “jansunwai” (public hearing) at her residence every Friday, and for this many MLAs come with the public of their constituency for putting forward their problems and demands.

“Similarly today, the CM is holding public hearing in which MLAs and party workers are meeting”, the spokesman said. “The news of signature by 120 MLAs (in her support) is completely wrong. It is not fair to link public hearing with a different view”, he said. The CMO said the Chief Minister never asked or made any call to MLAs to show their strength and support. This is the second day that her office has rubbished media reports surrounding her.
