2 min read

Ahead of the Monsoon Session of Parliament, Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje met party president Amit Shah in Delhi on Sunday. Top Cabinet Ministers earlier held a meeting at Shah’s residence in which he discussed the strategy to counter the opposition in Parliament.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Information and Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad were among those who met Shah.

Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is also likely to meet Amit Shah later on Sunday.

The focus is especially on two BJP chief Ministers- Vasundhara Raje and Shivraj Singh Chouhan who are caught in the singing fire of two separate scams.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Raje, whose alleged involvement in the Lalit Modi row has seen her being targeted by Congress, and her Madhya Pradesh counterpart, who is under attack over the Vyapam scam, are expected to present their side of the story to the party so that the government can effectively deal with the opposition, sources said.

Chouhan is also likely to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi later in the day.

Congress has sought resignations of both Chouhan and Raje. It has also demanded that Swaraj quit for helping former IPL boss Lalit Modi.

The Monsoon Session of Parliament, which begins Tuesday, is set to be a stormy one as Congress and several other opposition parties appeared to be closing ranks to corner the government on a range of issues, including the Vyapam scam and Lalit Modi controversy.
