CONGRESS RUBBISHES SUSHMA’S CLAIM THAT UNION MINISTER SHIELDING TEJPAL
Congress spokesman Meem Afzal today rubbished senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj’s allegations that Union Cabinet Minister Kapil Sibal was shielding Tehelka founder Tarun Tejpal who was accused of sexual assault of his junior.
Without naming anyone, Swaraj today tweeted, “Union Cabinet Minister who is the founder and patron of Tehelka is shielding Tarun Tejpal.”
Talking to reporters in Moradabad, Afzal said that there was no question of supporting Tejpal, adding that the allegations were baseless.
When asked whether Sibal had stake in Tehelka, he replied in negative.
Reacting to Former MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav’s claims that three MPs of his Party got money “courtesy then finance minister Yashwant Sinha”, to join the NDA in 2001, the Congress leader sought proofs from Yadav.
