treatment Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje Reuters "This witness statement is provided on the strict understanding that its contents and the identity of its maker are treated confidentially and that it is used only for the purposes stated in it "I make this statement in support of any immigration application that Lalit Modi makes but do so on the strict condition that my assistance will not become known to the Indian authorities" says the document dated 18 August 2011 This transpired a year after Modi left India when allegations of financial wrongdoing in the IPL surfaced against him Though he was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate on several occasions Modi refused to return claiming a threat to his life His passport was soon revoked The authenticity of the document has not been verified yet "I know Modi’s family But I do not know what is this document they are talking about" Raje told news agency ANI inJaipur Her supporters have raised questions about the veracity of Modi’s claims by pointing out that the papers do not have her signature It is not known why Modi has himself put out such damaging documents against Raje if she was indeed trying to help him Just a day ago Modi had hinted that he will soon unleash a war and many other skeletons will tumble out of his closet From the developments so far Raje seems to be high on Modi’s list of friends he is trying to settle old scores with The ongoing controversy is a shocking finale to the bond Raje and Modi once shared Just a few years ago they were family friends and political allies Several years ago when Modi was trying to get a foothold into the BCCI the Rajasthan chief minister handed over Rajasthan Cricket Association to him on a platter by bringing in a controversial sports ordinance Before Modi became the president by unseating the mighty Rungtas the electorate for the RCA comprised 32 district associations and 67 individual members The Raje government’s ordinance denied voting rights to individual members – most of them were Rungta family loyalists – paving the way for Modi’s victory One of the clauses in the ordinance made convicted criminals ineligible for elections to sports bodies This almost scuttled Modi’s plan when it was revealed that Modi was convicted of possessing drugs kidnapping and assault in the US during his days as a university student The conviction came after Modi confessed to committing the offences before a North Carolina court But a friendly government in Rajasthan stood by Modi’s side and ensured his victory After pocketing Rajasthan Modi went on to become a vice president in the BCCI and later the IPL chief During Raje’s first tenure as chief minister of Rajasthan (2003-2008) Modi was often accused by the opposition of being the "super chief minister" Her rival Congress leader Ashok Gehlot repeatedly attacked Modi saying he was controlling the government from his suite in a five-star hotel in Jaipur "She used to send her bureaucrats with files to Lalit Modi at the Rambagh Hotel to negotiate on all the big deals When I became the chief minister we set up the Mathur Commission to investigate all these allegations" Gehlot alleged after becoming the CM in 2008 While she was leader of the opposition in the Assembly the Congressrepeatedly targeted Raje for her long absence from the state Gehlot would often insinuate that she had gone to London to meet her well-wishers In November 2012 just before his birthday there were rumours that Raje had met Modi at 117 Sloane Street believed to be his residence to discuss strategy for the upcoming elections But the rumours remained just that in the absence of evidence Around the same time Raje’s son Dushyant got embroiled in another controversy because of his alleged financial deals with Modi A Jaipur-based lawyer Poonam Chand Bhandari wrote a series of letters to the Enforcement Directorate claiming Modi had laundered black money for Raje’s son who is a two-term MP from Dholpur In his complaint Bhandari alleged that around Rs 11 crore wasrouted to Niyant Heritage Hospitality Ltd by a company owned by Modi and his wife According to the complaint Dushyant and his wife are directors andshareholders in Niyant Hospitality Bhandari had alleged that the money transferred to Niyant Hospitality was routed through a fictitious Mauritius-based company and it was a case of round tripping of money In 2013 Bhandari filed a petition in the Delhi High Court In January this year a division bench of the HC refused to intervene in the matter saying that it wasn’t necessary since an Additional Solicitor General (ASG) appearing on behalf of the Union Government has informed that a probe into the matter has already been initiated "He (ASG) further states that an open and general investigation has been initiated and is in progress Mr Sanjay Jain ASG also states that the investigation shall be taken to its logical conclusion and in accordance with law In view of the statement made by Mr Sanjay Jain ASG no further directions are necessary from this Court" the HC order said The first indication of relations between Raje and Modi turning sour came in 2013 As pointed out by Firstpost during the 2013 election campaign Modi sent out a series of damaging tweets alleging Jaitley was conspiring against Raje "Elections round the corner. Seems coterie of Arun Jaitley-Bhupendra Yadav has started to sell tickets Cash-for-tickets seems (to be the) new mantra Sad" he said In another tweet he warned Raje "Be careful. Arun Jaitley’s Man Friday Bhupendra Yadav and your man (Dhirendra) Kamthan sell tickets for cash" One of the immediate provocations for these charges to which the BJP responded by calling Modi a fugitive was denial of party ticket to the IPL chief’s close aide from Dausa Later Modi swung to the other extreme and became Raje’s critic demanding that she be replaced with Prime Minister’s trusted lieutenant and BJP general secretary Om Mathur Nobody knows what prompted that turnaround Was Modi trying to build bridges with Jaitley or was he trying to fake a fight with Raje to shield her from his detractors Now that the Raje-Modi equation is under the scanner we will know the exact status of the relation between the mentor and the muse And if Raje will be destroyed by the man she created a decade ago was playing near his home. sat next to him.
