"Salman Khursid is a responsible person. He is a Central Minister. He was a Central Minister earlier as well. When he is saying there is no scam, he should be believed... I don't think a person like Khurshid will do anything for an amount like Rs 71 lakh. It is a very small amount for a Central Minister," he told reporters here.
Verma was commenting on the alleged misappropriation of funds by a trust run by Khurshid and his wife. In a press conference yesterday, Khurshid had rejected the allegation and had offered himself to any probe.
"If it would have been Rs 71 crore, even I would have been serious," Verma said adding Khurshid should not resign from his current position.
Verma trained his guns on activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal who has been demanding the resignation of Khurshid on the issue.
"Kejriwal is going to launch a party. I have all the best wishes for him. India has a multi-party system and one more will come. It's good. But, I have a piece of advice for him: Don't bark day in day out, try sometimes to roar like a tiger. Those who always bark are of no value," Verma said.
Minister Beni thinks Khurshid will not get involved in a scam for small sum of Rs 70 Lakhs. That begs a question: What Mr. Beni Prasad thinks is threasohold for a minister to get involved in scam?
As per his statement his colleagues are only interested in corores of rupees tax payers money but not the small amounts that means he is putting a ceiling on corruption to make it legal? What an idiotic reasoning is this? GOD SAVE THE COUNTRY FROM THESE UCTL (UPPER CHAMBER TO LET)LEADERS. JAIHIND
And, these are our ministers - How classy? How articulate?
All said and done - even if Kejriwal were barking like a dog. That gives the Congress mongrel "Digvijay Singh" something to bark about.
