Jaitley refuses to respond on corruption allegations

New Delhi: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday refused to respond on corruption allegations levelled against him by the Congress and AAP, dubbing them "vague and without basis".

"What is the specific allegation? I can't answer vague allegations without any basis," Jaitley told the media here.

Alleging financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association which Jaitley once headed, the Congress demanded a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe.

It asked the finance minister to resign as minister till a probe into the DDCA was completed.

The AAP also asked Jaitley to quit, saying the CBI raided the Delhi Secretariat on Tuesday to derail a probe by the Delhi government into the DDCA.
