JAIPUR: Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje has neither sought an appointment with BJP chief Amit Shah nor has she been denied a meeting, her office today said amid claims that the party leadership had distanced itself in the wake of allegations against her in the Lalitgate.   

In a statement here, the Press Advisor of Chief Minister's Office said that a few news channels showed that Raje desired an appointment from Shah but she was denied a meeting, which was "untrue".      

It also refuted reports that 30 BJP MLAs went to Delhi in support of Raje.  

The CMO advised media that they should confirm news contents before publishing or broadcasting them.  

After it was alleged that Raje had supported scam-tainted former IPL chief Lalit Modi's immigration plea in Britain, she had yesterday called up Shah and explained her position.     

Sources had said Raje discussed with Shah the claims made by Lalit Modi and told the party chief that she did share family ties with the former IPL boss but there is no wrongdoing on her part.     

They said Raje has sought to explain her ties between the two families and her friendship with Modi's wife but the documents being circulated in the media are "unverified and unsigned".
