Not angry with Sushma Swaraj: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, Aug 12 (IANS) Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said he was not angry with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and just wanted her to explain why she discreetly helped former Indian Premier League chief Lalit Modi.

“I am not angry with her. I just want her to tell the country why she helped Lalit Modi discreetly,” the Congress leader told reporters outside parliament house after a heated debate on the issue in the Lok Sabha.

He said many do humanitarian work, but they don’t hide them. “If she had done it on humanitarian grounds, why did she have to hide it,” he asked.

Rahul Gandhi also asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to fulfil his election promise of retreiving black money back stashed away in foreign banks.

“Prime minister was elected on certain promises, he should fulfil them,” he added.

Asked why does he think Modi did not turn up in Lok Sabha during the debate on Lait Modi issue, the Congress leader said it would have been a “major embarrassment” for him.
