Reacting to Gadkari's remarks that 'accusations' against Raje have 'no substance' and BJP as well as the Central government are strongly behind her, Pilot said it was an important aspect of 'BJP's corruption protection policy' by ignoring the facts and figure.

"There are hard facts and evidences against the both but it appears that it is an important aspect of BJP's corruption protection policy," Pilot alleged. He said the BJP high command, including Gadkari, has given 'clean chit' to Raje and Dushyant despite the two openly acknowledging their links with the former IPL chief.

Reacting to Gadkari's statement that Raje had done no wrong and such issues should not be brought into politics, the Rajasthan Congress chief said the party is not making any one, neither Raje nor her son, victim of politics.

He also criticised Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for giving 'clean chit' to Raje and Dushyant even before ED probe against Lalit Modi was complete. The BJP was insulting the public mandate and their feeling, and was following unconstitutional policy by giving 'clean chit' to its accused leaders, Pilot said.
