Lalit Modi threatens to drag Rahul Gandhi to court over ‘All Modis are Chor’ remark

New Delhi: Lalit Modi, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the former Indian Premier League (IPL), on Friday targeted Congress President Rahul Gandhi over his, “All thieves have Modi in his surname” jibe. He said that he will be taken to a court in the United Kingdom.

“The papu @rahulgandhi says “All MODI’s are CHOR’s”. Well he will be taken to court in the UK by Me. But reality is that the world knows 5 decades of daylight looting of India was and is done by none other than the Gandhi family,” Lalit tweeted.

“Kaun #chor Kaun #chowkidar – you decide. @RahulGandhi @narendramodi @lalitkmodi” read his second tweet posted along with a video of the alleged scams done by Congress.

Rahul Gandhi, while addressing an election rally at Kolar on April 13, had said, “I have a question. Why all the thieves have Modi in their names whether be it Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi and Narendra Modi? We don’t know how many more such Modis will come out.”

The Congress chief drew flak for this remark from Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well as Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi. Sushil Modi on Thursday filed a defamation case against Gandhi over his comment in Patna Civil Court.
