Live: Why is govt not releasing my letters on Lalit Modi, Chidambaram asks

05:11 PM

The Modi government swings like a pendulum, out of control when it comes to policy.

P Chidambaram05:05 PM

We are totally opposed to power being centered in the hands of one person, as in the case of Modi.

P Chidambaram05:04 PM

If the PM prefers to cheer from the sidelines and not enter the arena, then what we can do?

It is difficult to believe that Sushma Swaraj didn’t know about the 4 Feb, 2004, judgement which rejected charges against Rajiv Gandhi (in Bhopal gas tragedy). We want an unqualified apology from her.

P Chidambaram04:46 PM

They did everything except answering crucial questions that arose out of Sushma Swaraj’s intervention on behalf of Lalit Modi.

P Chidambaram04:44 PM

Instead of debate, we got diatribe, instead of answers we got a sermons and instead of facts we got fudge.

P Chidambaram04:43 PM

Chidambaram poses questions on Sushma and BJP

“If Sushma wanted to intervene on humanitarian grounds,why did she not press Lalit Modi to apply for Indian documents? Why did the ministers selectively quote from the finance ministers’ letters, why are not releasing the letters? Why did Sushma Swaraj keep her ministry in dark? Who took the decision not to file an appeal and what are the reasons and why have the reasons not been made public? Sushma Swaraj intervened at a time when the case was pending,” asks Chidambaram.04:39 PM

Monsoon session started with acrimony and ended with more acrimony on part of the BJP.

‘India stands educated about Congress party and the family that controls it’

“Congress party’s real intent was to not let the economy grow; they used “lung power” to try and halt progress. India stands educated about Congress party and the family that controls it,” says Jaitley.03:15 PM
