Rao alleged that it was the reason why H.S. Chandramauli, who represented Choksi in a criminal case in 2015, was given a legislator ticket from the Madikeri constituency for the Karnataka Assembly election next month.
Slamming the Congress's connection with Choksi, the BJP leader said: "First Rahul had promoted Choksi's Gitanjali Jewellery in 2013.
"Then in 2013, former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram had removed the Director of the Allahabad Bank for denying to restructure a loan of Rs 1,550 crore to Choksi when he highlighted the lacunae in it.
"One incident can be a coincidence, but multiple coincidences is a political conspiracy."
The BJP leader also described Choksi as the third Robert Vadra of the Congress and said: "Choksi is third son-in-law of Congress after (Priyanka Gandhi's husband) Vadra and Vijay Mallya, who is an accused in a Rs 9,000 crore bank loan case."
