Vasundhara Raje, Lalit Modi illegally occupying Dholpur Palace: Congress

Claiming that Vasundhara Raje and Lalit Modi are “business partners”, the Congress on Monday alleged that a firm owned by the Rajasthan Chief Minister’s son Dushyant, in which the former IPL chief and Raje have shares, has “forcibly” and “illegally” occupied Dholpur Palace.

Ramesh also took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, describing him as “Swami Maunendra Baba” for his continued silence over the controversy.
