Helping Lalit is legally, morally wrong:BJP MP R K Singh

New Delhi, Jun 23: BJP MP R K Singh today has said, helping Lalit Modi is legally and morally wrong.

BJP MP today struck a dissonant note over party leaders Sushma Swaraj and Vasundhara Raje extending help to former IPL boss Lalit Modi.

He urged the government to take all measures to bring him back to India to face the law.

Such strong comments are the first public criticism by a ruling party MP against the help extended to Lalit Modi by External Affairs Minister Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Raje, an issue which has snowballed into a major political storm for the Narendra Modi government even though BJP has defended both the leaders. He also said Lalit Modi had been evading judicial warrants and summons and he was clearly a fugitive and any help given to him or any meeting with him was wrong.

Singh said the government should appeal against the Delhi High Court order which restored passport of the former IPL commissioner and demanded that his property should be attached, if needed.

All measures should be taken to bring him back to India so that he faces the law, he said.

Previously, Modi , 49 , travelled to London in 2010 after the Indian Premier League (IPL) became embroiled in allegations of match-fixing and illegal betting.
