New Delhi: In a new twist to the Lalit Modi controversy, the former IPL chief on Friday took to Twitter and claimed that he met Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra in London last year.
In a series of tweets, Modi claimed that he was “happy to meet the Gandhi family at a restaurant in London”.
“Happy to meet the Gandhi Family in London. I had run into Robert and Priyanka separately in a restaurant – they were with Timmy Sarna. He has my no. They can call me. Will tell them what I feel about them exactly,” Lalit Modi tweeted.
“Will mince no words. Will make no deal. But tell them witch hunt will now make them realize I was. If I remember correctly it was last year and the year before. Doubt either reported it to anyone. They were in power then,” his tweets added.
Commenting on the series of tweets, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said that “neither Priyanka Gandhi nor Robert Vadra has ever interacted socially with Lalit Modi. If you see an individual in a restaurant full of people, it is neither a crime nor it is morally wrong.”
However, BJP questioned, “Why Gandhi family is in constant touch of Lalit Modi”.
“We want to ask as to why Gandhi family is in constant touch of Lalit Modi? This raises a serious question,” Sambit Patra said.
