Narendra Modi’s allegations on Sonia’s foreign trips baseless: Manish Tewari
New Delhi: Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari on Saturday refuted the allegation made by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi with regard to government money being spent on Sonia Gandhi`s foreign trips.
Addressing reporters here Tewari said, “Allegations made by Narendra Modi that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is misleading the country on the issue of Congress president Sonia Gandhi`s foreign trips are completely baseless.”
Modi had earlier said, "The Prime Minister is misguiding the country. I ask the Prime Minister as a common man to come clean. The RTI reply received from various Indian embassies abroad says lakhs of rupees were spent on Soniaji`s foreign trips."
Modi`s fresh allegations came on a day when the Prime Minister`s Office issued a statement, saying government had not spent money on overseas visits of the UPA chairperson or on her medical treatment and rubbished Modi`s earlier claim that government had spent Rs 1,880 crore on her trips.
