Following the statements made by Dawood Rawat relating to minister Showkutally Soodhun, the latter immediately went to the CCID today to file a complaint. When interviewed by ION News reporters, Dawood Rawat asserted that the BAI had financed the MSM during the last few years. He said that minister Soodhun had met with him last year, asking for political contributions of huge amounts several times.
Dawood Rawat also said that though they had financed all the political parties back then, they had given away the most to the MSM.
