Jaipur : The Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari on Monday met to Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje in Jaipur and convinced her for the strongly support of the party, over her alleged links with former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi.

Coming out strongly in defence of Raje, Gadkari said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) stands with her. He said that the BJP as well as the central government are strongly behind her as "accusations" against her have "no substance".

Following a meeting with Raje, the former BJP president said that Raje had done nothing wrong and said that such issues should not be brought into politics.

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.

The Union Minister further clarified that Raje's son Dushyant's deal with Lalit Modi's company was purely a commercial one. Notably, the same was asserted by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday.

The meeting assumed significance as it was the first meeting of the Rajasthan leader with a senior party leader since the controversy broke out. She had earlier cancelled a trip to Anandpur Sahib in Punjab where she was slated to meet BJP president Amit Shah and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
