Jaipur: Amid the raging row over Lalit Modi's linkages with Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Monday met her in Jaipur and said the BJP as well as the central government are strongly behind her as "accusations" against her have "no substance".

Gadkari, a senior BJP leader, insisted that Raje had done no wrong and said that such issues should not be brought into politics.

"The allegations against Vasundhara Raje are baseless.... Vasundhara ji legally, logically, ethically is completely correct. There is no fault of hers anywhere," the Union Road Transport and Highways Minister told reporters amid the raging row over the linkages of the Chief Minister and her son with Lalit Modi who is facing ED probe for alleged money laundering in an IPL tournament.

"These accusations have no substance. Doing this kind of politics is not right," he said, adding "BJP, of the Centre, the state and the government is standing behind Vasundhara fully.
