Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Priyanka Chaturvedi on Monday in an indirect attack at the Centre criticised the presence of Lalit Modi at the wedding of the former solicitor general of India and top lawyer Harish Salve who is also a member of the ‘One Nation, One Election’ panel headed by former President Ram Nath Kovind.
Priyanka Chaturvedi reposted the statements of a journalist who said, “When fugitive businessman Lalit Modi attends the third marriage of sr lawyer Harish Salve, who is also member of #OneNationOnePoll panel headed by ex-Pres Kovind, questions are bound to be raised. Modi is wanted by Indian agencies on charges like corruption & money laundering.”
Meanwhile Sanjay Singh of Aaam Aadmi Party(AAP) also wrote on X,”Harish Salve, member of the High Level Committee of One Nation One Election, with Lalit Modi, the fugitive who looted India’s thousands of crores. Modi ji answer, what is your relation with Lalit Modi? How is he celebrating with your special friends?” when loosely translated from Hindi to English.
Top lawyer Harish Salve wed for the third time in London on Monday. He exchanged vows with his British partner Trina at an event that was attended by numerous guests including Lalit Modi.
Lalit Modi, the ex-IPL Commissioner, was suspended from the BCCI shortly after IPL 2010. He was suspended after being accused of misconduct, and financial irregularities in his transactions.
