In a new twist on the tale about Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj helping Lalit Modi obtain British travel papers, documents released by Lalit Modi show’s that Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje agreed to be secret witness for his immigration application.
Lalit Modi’s PR Team releases a three-page note which stated that Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje has agreed to support Lalit Modi’s application for immigration to the UK in 2011, when she was opposition leader, but on condition of strict secrecy.
This witness statement is provided on the strict understanding that its contents and the identity of its maker are treated confidentially and that it is used only for the purposes stated in it,” says the document dated 18 August 2011.
The document purported to be Vasundhara Raje’s testimony also says: “I make this statement in support of any immigration application that Lalit Modi makes, but do so on the strict condition that my assistance will not become known to the Indian authorities.”(Authenticity of the document is yet to be verified)
Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje is yet to respond on this current issue.
