Unrelenting in its attacks, the Congress party on Monday alleged that Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje and Lalit Modi were business partners.

Lalit Modi and Vasundhara Raje conspired to convert the Dholpur Palace, a government property, into a luxury hotel, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said at a press meet. He also showed some documents to back the claims.

The Congress has targeted Raje after the emergence of a letter reportedly carrying her signature, in which she backs Lalit Modi's application in the UK. Jairam Ramesh also called prime minister Narendra Modi "Swami Maunendra".

"The first thing that has been established is that the fugitive Lalit Modi and Vasundhara Raje are business partners. The second fact which has been established is that Lalit Modi got Rs 21 crore from Mauritius and invested in Dushyant Singh's company. The third fact is that Vasundhara Raje signed a seven page document for UK authorities to abet Lalit Modi. There have been three lies, three cover-ups by the BJP and Vasundhara Raje. Today, we are exposing the fourth fact of this episode," Jairam Ramesh said.

"Today, we present you the documents where Lalit Modi and Vasundhara Raje changed government property into personal property. In 1954, the Dholpur Riyasat merged with the Union in Independent India and in 1977, the Dholpur Palace was made government property. Despite the Dholpur Palace being the property of the government, Raje and Lalit Modi proceeded to convert it into a high-end private luxury hotel," he added.

Ramesh also alleged that Raje's husband had admitted the same in 1980.

"The magnitude of quid pro quo, the financial relationship between Raje and her fugitive friend and partner Lalit Modi are getting unearthed everyday... We sadly have to state that Vasundhara Raje's husband in 1980 had made a statement saying that the Dholpur Palace belongs to the government," he said.
