Finance Minister Jaitley meets Amit Shah
Amid growing demands for the resignation of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje over her alleged favour to former IPL chief Lalit Modi, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Friday met BJP president Amit Shah at his residence.
The two are believed to have discussed the controversy surrounding Raje. According to sources, before meeting Shah, Jaitley also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Jaitley had returned from a week-long visit to the US on Thursday.
Soon after landing at the airport Jaitley had told reporters while replying to a question related to Raje and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj that there is "nobody who is tainted".
Sushma Swaraj is being accused of helping Modi in getting British travel documents on "humanitarian grounds" to travel to Portugal in 2014 after his Indian passport stood revoked. Raje is accused of testifying in favour of Modi's British immigration application in 2011.
