Former Madhya Pradesh Finance Minister Raghavji, who resigned from his position over sodomy charges, on Friday said that there could be a political conspiracy behind allegations leveled against him by his domestic help.

"The allegations against me are wrong and baseless," Raghavji told reporters.

"There could be political conspiracy behind the allegations," he said.

Raghavji on Friday resigned after his domestic help alleged that the minister sodomised him.

Raghavji´s domestic help earlier in the day registered a complaint against him at Habibganj police station.

He has reportedly submitted a CD to the police as an evidence of sexual harassment.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan asked Raghavji to submit his resignation.

State Water Resources Minister Jayant Malaiya has been given the interim charge of the finance department following the developments, reports said.
