New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologue K.N. Govindacharya on Monday said that instead of trying to give legal excuses, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) must take a principled stand on its leaders.
'The politics of morality cannot be expected of the opposition. This new government must show morality. Instead of trying to show legal excuses the government must take principled stand. Otherwise what is difference between opposition and the government?,' K.N. Govindacharya told ANI.
'I agree that the image of the government will be downplayed if it doesn't initiate any step,' he added.
The BJP, which has been defending Sushma Swaraj despite opposition demands that she be sacked for helping Lalit Modi, has been hit with another worry when the former IPL boss claimed that Raje secretly supported his immigration plea in Britain.
The opposition mounted pressure on Raje after the emergence of a letter reportedly carrying her signature, in which she backs Lalit Modi's application in the UK.
Meanwhile, a Delhi court agreed to hear a complaint against Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani over her educational qualifications.
