PM following 'Raje dharma, not rajya dharma', says Congress


New Delhi, June 27: Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Lalitgate, Congress on Saturday accused him of following "Raje dharma" and "not rajya dharma" by shielding Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

"The Prime Minister should follow 'rajya dharma' and not 'Raje dharma' or 'Lalit dharma'," party spokesman Ajoy Kumar told reporters here even as he reiterated the party's demand for the sacking of Raje and Swaraj.

Congress hits out at PM Modi

Targeting the prime minister, Kumar said that his response on the issues of corruption and black money was "very disappointing" after his "tall promises" made during the Lok Sabha polls. "Instead of taking action on these issues, Modi has become the protector of those having huge black money," he charged.

Kumar's remarks follow in the wake of the BJP central leadership coming out to back Raje after initially not voicing its support for days.

Congress argued that Raje has committed an "anti-national" act

Rajasthan BJP has, meanwhile, refuted all the allegations against her, saying the document which she signed in support of former IPL boss Lalit Modi's immigration application was never produced in court as she had backed out of it later.

However, the Congress spokesman argued that Raje has committed an "anti-national" act by secretly supporting the immigration application of Lalit Modi. This has exposed BJP's "pseudo-nationalism", he claimed.

Incidentally, when he was the Gujarat Chief Minister 13 years back at the time when the state was rocked by riots, Narendra Modi was asked by the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee to "follow Raj Dharma".
