The Congress on Friday asked the central government to specify a time frame for bringing back former cricket IPL chief Lalit Modi to the country and alleged that he enjoyed the patronage of the ruling NDA dispensation.

The Enforcement Directorate has said it wishes to question the former Indian Premier League chief on money laundering charges.

“The government should tell us when it will get Lalit Modi back to the country,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala told reporters here.

He said the Congress would raise the issue inside and outside parliament.

Former finance minister P. Chidambaram wrote to the British authorities two years ago, calling for the deportation of Lalit Modi over money laundering charges, Surjewala said, adding that the then UPA government wanted Lalit Modi to be brought back to face the law.
