There are serious charges of match fixing and embezzlement of 700 crores.
For alleged violation of Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA). In connection with the case, the Enforcement Directorate also had issued a blue corner notice against him.

Lalit Modi had a very close relationship with the BJP. During Vasundhara Raje's first tenure as Chief Minister of Rajasthan,
It was at this time that he came into prominence and became the president of the Rajasthan Cricket Association before making a lateral entry into the BCCI and subsequently assuming charge as the board's Vice President and commissioner of the Indian Premier League.

Lalit Modi and Passport Revocation Case –
Congress Government revoked his passport
Congress Government on record advised the British government against giving Lalit Modi any travel documents.
Later BJP government came to power after that Delhi High Court restored his passport and the Government of India, which had earlier revoked the passport, chose not to appeal against the decision.

Same Government did not allow honest Indian Citizen to go to London to speak

Sushma Swaraj –
Political Party – BJP
Sushma Swaraj is a heavyweight politician
Currently she is a Foreign Minister

The BJP, led by Ms Swaraj in Parliament, asked for the resignation of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor in 2010.
Mr. Tharoor, then minister of state for foreign affairs and blue-eyed boy of the Congress leadership, was cornered by the same Lalit Modi in a tweet in which he hinted at Mr. Tharoor's involvement in a case of sweat equity of 70 crore with one of the IPL franchisees. Mr Tharoor was not directly involved but the BJP forced him to resign. Till now, nothing has happened in that case.

Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and Lalit Modi Connection –
Sushma Swaraj's husband Swaraj Kaushal was Lalit Modi's lawyer for 22 years and her daughter Bansuri has been his lawyer for more than four years.
Lalit Modi purportedly helped her nephew get admission in Sussex University.

According to media reports Swaraj’s daughter was a lawyer for Lalit Modi and the British MP Keith Vaz who was mediating for him reportedly helped secure an admission for a Swaraj relative at Sussex.

Media reported that External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj had met former Indian Premier League chief Lalit Modi at a hotel in London hotel in October 2014 
On the same trip she met British parliamentarian Keith Vaz and Gopi Hinduja as well on the same trip.
The meetings took place at a hotel in Kensington on October 17 and 18

What is Controversy what happened between Lalit Modi and Sushma Swaraj?

According to the British media, Indian-origin British MP Keith Vaz used Sushma Swaraj's name to put pressure on UK immigration officials to grant travel papers to Lalit Modi.

Sushma Swaraj, the Foreign Minister, has admitted that she helped ex-IPL commissioner, Lalit Modi, a fugitive in the eyes of the law.

Congress Government on record advised the British government against giving Lalit Modi any travel documents.

But on the name of humatarian ground Sushma Swaraj helped the Fugitive Lalit Modi.

What is mistake in helping Fugitive Lalit Modi?
Whats wrong in helping a fugitive friend 

Is it right to help accused person who is absconding from law?

Is it right to help the person against whom Blue Corner notice has been issued by the Government of India?

Helping Accused person is it not a one type of corruption
Yes it’s a corruption

Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and PM Modi and Former PM Manmohan Singh –

Case 1 – Ashwini Kumar and Ex.PM Manmohan Singh

Ashwini Kumar, former law minister, very close to then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who had asked the CBI to come to his office with the progress report of the coal scam investigations.
He was accused of pressuring the investigating agency to manipulate the report.
Protests erupted in Parliament and Ashwini Kumar was left with no option but to quit the cabinet.
Till now there is no case against him.

Case 2 – Pawan Bansal and Ex. PM Manmohan Singh
Pawan Bansal, former cabinet minister of company affairs. His nephew was caught fixing transfers and postings using Pawan Bansal's name. Before the case was investigated he exited the ministry. Again, no case has been registered against him.
Case 3 – Sushma Swaraj and PM Narendra Modi?

Every time scandals surfaced during the UPA regime, Opposition party BJP did not let Parliament function for weeks. Hundreds of hours of parliamentary business were wasted.
The BJP would relent only when the minister in question resigned owning moral responsibility.

Now what PM Narendra Modi should do?

Should he ask Sushma Swaraj to resign?

Helping Fugitive is a crime

Just think that Fugitive is running he asks you water and you give him water and someone informs about that to police then what will happen?

Police will reward you or arrest you or give you danda on your ass before arresting you for questioning.

Sushma should not only be forced to resign but should also be arrested for helping a criminal. If this can be done to a common man, it should also be done to the minister. India law should the same for all. But we know the law is not the same for all. Take the case of Salman and Jayalalitha.
