My diminishing respect for you ends now: Ram Jethmalani 'breaks up' with Modi
Noted lawyer Ram Jethmalani on Monday announced his 'break-up' with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said his 'diminishing respect' for Modi has 'ended'
New Delhi: Noted lawyer Ram Jethmalani on Monday announced his "break-up" with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said his "diminishing respect" for Modi has "ended".
The expelled BJP MP, who had strongly supported Modi's prime ministerial bid, had been opposed to the appointment of former CBDT chairman K V Chowdary as Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) and said he will now fight the government in Supreme Court after his appointment was cleared by the President on Monday.
"Now we shall fight out in the Supreme Court and the court of the people of India. My diminishing respect for you ends now," Jethmalani wrote in a letter to Modi.
Expressing strong reservations over the move to make Chowdary as next CVC, he had written to President Pranab Mukherjee and Modi, questioning his credentials.
He posted the communication on Twitter and called it "My break-up with Prime Minister Narendra Modi".
