Kamat was on a whirlwind tour of Kota-Bundi-Tonk districts along with PCC chief Sachin Pilot and Leader of Opposition Rameshwar Dudi.

He said that BJP had made the blackmoney an election issue but was sitting silent now because 'the blackmoney was deposited in the account of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's son Dushyant Singh'.

"Despite enough evidences on getting financial benefit with the help of Lalit Modi, former IPL Commissioner, Raje's continuation as Chief Minister was very unfortunate," Kamat was quoted as saying in a Congress release here.

Helping absconder Lalit Modi was an insult to the constitution, and shielding corruption, a criminal case has to be registered against Raje, incharge of party affairs in Rajasthan Kamat demanded.

PCC chief Sachin Pilot also criticised Raje over Lalitgate, saying the BJP speaking to contain corruption was now protecting its leaders for storing blackmoney.

Pilot too commented on PM Narendra Modi's silence on the whole Lalitgate, saying that 'he (PM) should have expelled Rajasthan Chief Minister Raje, because a criminal case needed to be registered against her'.
