Lalit Modi says he met Priyanka Gandhi and her husband in London

New Delhi: Modigate is becoming more and more complicated. A latest report suggests that the fall guy of the Indian cricket former IPL chief Lalit Modi met Priyanka Gandhi and her husband Robert Vadera in London last year.

Though the BJP has started an attack against Gandhis and the Congress party following the reports, Lalit Modi’s claim that he bumped into the couple in a restaurant takes the air out of the BJP’s all out attack.

While talking about the couple he said that he was happy to see them. “Happy to meet the Gandhi family in London. I had run into Robert (Vadra) and Priyanka separately in a restaurant,” tweeted Modi, who is embroiled in a huge row over his alleged financial irregularities. He said the Gandhi couple was with Timmy Sarna, who is with DLF Brands Ltd. “They can call me. Will tell them what I feel about them exactly,” he said. “Will mince no words. Will make no deal…priyanka gandhi

He also said that he didn’t clearly remember as to when he met them. “If I remember correctly, it was last year and the year before. Doubt either reported it to anyone. They were in power then,” he said. The Bharatiya Janata Party asked Sonia Gandhi to explain the meeting claimed by Modi since her Congress party is demanding with resignation of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje over her links with Modi. “The Congress must explain. Why Mrs Gandhi is silent?” asked BJP’s Sambit Patra.

The Congress party that has been on offensive against the BJP on the issue responded in kind. The Congress hit back, saying Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra had committed no crime. “No crime if Priyanka, Robert Vadra met Lalit Modi in London,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told reporters here. He said they met Modi in a crowded restaurant.
