Lalit Modi Case | Government will play by rule book: Jaitley on #LalitGate

Finance minister Arun Jaitley said on Wednesday that the government has done no wrong in the “Lalitgate” and there is no question of going on the back foot. “The government will play by rule book and will make sure that absolute standards of probity are maintained in the case,” the finance minister said in the US. Under attack from the opposition for describing the deal between Vasundhara Raje’s son and Lalit Modi as a “commercial transaction”, Jaitley on Tuesday had said that assessing authorities would continue to do their job in probing the matter. “I have never used such a word. That is never part of my domain,” Jaitley told reporters when asked about opposition’s allegations that his remarks that the loan given to Dushyant Singh by Modi, the former IPL chief, was a commercial transaction, amounted to giving “clean chit” to the BJP MP. “That is clear misinterpretation of (what I said). Whatever various assessing authorities in India have to do, its their job. They would continue to do that,” Jaitley said on the sidelines of a public event at the Stanford University. Singh, son of Rajasthan Chief Minister Raje, has been under attack over media reports that his company received Rs 11.63 crore in investments from Modi in 2008.
