New Delhi, January 9: Eminent lawyer Ram Jethmalani has said that by obliging Sahara India in a multi-crore tax evasion case, Modi government has plotted its own disaster. Jethmalani ostensibly holds Arun Jaitley responsible for this ‘disaster.’
In a fresh statement released by Jethmalani on his website, the former BJP leader says that Sahara diaries which allegedly reveals that the chit Fund company donated huge amounts to Modi for poll funds could spell serious trouble for the Prime Minister.
Jethmalani has revealed that when he was counsel to Sahara he received the account which contained some cash entries paid to Modi, several years ago. Jethmalani said that during IT raids a diary was recovered which contained such entries but do not seem to be true.
He is of the view that despite no documentary evidence the entries pose a threat to Modi. If Sahara Chief Subroto Roy gives a statement to the police that he gave money to Modi for elections then such a statement would have an evidential value.
Therefore, the compromise or settlement with Sahara is disastrous and could be a plot hatched by Modi’s hidden enemy who wants to spell trouble for the PM so that if he is compelled to step down from the chair someone else could take his seat.
