The last two weeks Lalit Modi has been making startling revelations about his close association with Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself — all BJP leaders.

Priyanka, Vadra and Rahul: Now he has tweeted he has met the family of Congress President Sonia Gandhi a few times in London. They include her daughter Priyanka Gandhi, son Rahul Gandhi and son-in-law Robert Vadra.

Lalit Modi is known for his dalliances with Hollywood and Bollywood starlets. He is now spicing up the Indian polity by claiming links with Priyanka Gandhi as well in addition to the old BJP women leaders!

Priyanka-GandhiNo politician in India, whether belonging to the BJP or the Congress, is above board. Corruption, nepotism and crime are their daily staple that they escape from easily.

Embarrassment for India: The result: India continues to face embarrassment on the global stage with one scandal after another emerging out of the country despite a change in government and Narendra Modi’s lofty talk about how he is going to transform the country into a superpower!

Some Indian journalists are also throwing their weight behind Lalit Modi, who they say is more a victim than a culprit. The journalists extending their sympathy to the former Indian Premier League cricket boss include Shekhar Kapoor, Shobha De and Tavleen Singh. But then journalists are no saints!

Lalit Modi faces money laundering charges in India. It was to escape from that mess he had fled India in 2010 to London where he has been living since then.

If reports are to be believed, he has close links with the British royal family and some parliamentarians there as well and is set to get UK citizenship.

God save the U.K!
