Home minister rules out any resignations

New Delhi, June 24 (IANS) Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday ruled out any resignations in the wake of allegations of impropriety against some members of the union cabinet.

“There will be no resignations. This is not a UPA government. This is an NDA government,” Rajnath Singh said when asked whether there was pressure on the government to secure the resignation of some ministers before the monsoon session of parliament begins next month.

Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad added: “Also our ministers do not do what their (UPA) ministers did.”

While HRD Minister Smriti Irani is embroiled in a fake degree controversy, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has been accused of helping former IPL chief Lalit Modi in securing travel documents.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje has also been accused of helping Lalit Modi.
