New Delhi: The Congress on Thursday said it would keep asking questions on the Lalit Modi case, and asked why External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj requested for a British travel document for the former Indian Premier League chief, and not an Indian one.
“Why did she think Lalit Modi needed a Brtish travel document and not an Indian travel document? Why did she keep her ministry in the dark,” Congress leader C asked.
The comments from the former finance minister came a day after a debate in the Lok Sabha on the issue, which was replied to by Sushma Swaraj.
“Ministers have failed… instead of answers we got sermons,” he said.
“If the minister thinks these questions will go away, they will not go away; we will continue to raise them and demand answers,” said Chidambaram.
The monsoon session of parliament saw repeated disruptions and ruckus as the opposition, led by the Congress, created uproar over the alleged help to Lalit Modi by Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and the Vyapam recruitment scam in Madhya Pradesh.
