"There has been a criminal nexus between Lalit Modi and the Vasundhara Raje family," party leader Jairam Ramesh told reporters here. Declaring that Congress will not stop disclosures in the till a 'closure' is done by the BJP by removing Raje, Ramesh released some fresh documents including one of 1949 which showed that the Dholpur Palace was owned by the Rajasthan government.

For the second consecutive day, Ramesh accused her of 'forcible, illegal occupation' of the Dholpur Palace along with Lalit Modi through a private company. Ramesh said that the party has also not forgotten the case of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj who had helped Lalit Modi with travel documents.

"We have not forgotten about the Videsh Mantri. Closure and disclosure in her case is yet to come", he said. Taking a dig at Swaraj, the Congress leader cited, " Lalit Modi was helped on humanitarian grounds, grounds like hanging out with Naomi Campbell.

Insisting that the compromise between Hemant Singh, estranged husband of Raje and son Dushyant Singh was only for movable property, he claimed that despite much evidence produced by him, the BJP is trying to justify ownership of the property with Dushyant with 'lame duck' arguments.
