Prime News, National and International, New Delhi/London, April 19:- Former Indian Premier League (IPL) chief operating officer and tainted cricket administrator Lalit Modi has said he will sue Congress president Rahul Gandhi for his “all thieves have Modi in their surnames” remarks at an election rally recently.
“The #papu @rahulgandhi says “All MODI’s are CHOR’s”. Well he will be taken to court in the UK by Me. But reality is that the world knows 5 decades of daylight #looting of #India was and is done by none other than the #Gandhi #family,” Lalit Modi tweeted, tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“I have a question. Why do all the thieves have Modi in their names whether be it Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi and Narendra Modi? We don’t know how many more such Modis will come out,” Rahul Gandhi had said recently at a rally in Maharashtra, as he accused PM Modi of corruption.
PM Modi hit back at Rahul Gandhi, saying that such a language does not suit the Congress president but using derogatory words have become synonymous with the “naamdar (dynast).”
Lalit Modi, the man who started the IPL was ousted minutes after the final of the third edition for financial irregularities. It was a huge blow and the biggest controversy till then as Lalit Modi was charged on five counts — shady initial bids of Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab; a suspect broadcast deal with Sony; bid rigging of two new franchises this year and his behavioural pattern.
