Government rejects Congress allegations against Sushma Swaraj

New Delhi, Aug 12 (IANS) Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday accused the Congress of “empty slogans” on the Lalit Modi issue and said the government rejects the party’s allegations concerning External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

“They could not rise above empty slogans. They could not give any logical arguments,” Jaitley said in his reply to the adjournment motion on the Lalit Modi issue in the Lok Sabha.

“The government entirely rejects the allegations. The question of Sushma ji’s resignation does not arise,” he said.

The Congress has been demanding the resignation of Sushma Swaraj over her alleged help to former IPL chief Lalit Modi in getting British travel documents.

Lalit Modi is facing investigation by the Enforcement Directorate.

Sushma Swaraj has said she did not help Lalit Modi but his ailing wife on humanitarian grounds.
