Congress takes on Modi for corrupt ministers in his cabinet
Monday November 10, 2014 4:40 PM, IANS

The Congress party Monday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the rationale behind the Cabinet expansion and asked for the resignation of "corrupt" ministers.

"There is no thinking or rationale behind Modi-ji's Cabinet expansion. Modi-ji, have you removed the health and railway minister because they were corrupt, or they were incompetent and performed poorly?

"If you have removed the ministers because their assets have increased then in your cabinet there are two more ministers whose asset have increased in the past three months,so what about them," Congress spokesperson Ajay Maken said at a press conference here.

"You have not answered many of the questions. We hope that your corrupt and tainted minister will submit their resignations soon and you will apologise to the nation," added Maken.

However, the party refused to name the "corrupt and tainted" ministers who have been inducted into the Modi cabinet.

Maken also questioned Modi's "maximum government and minimum governance" mantra.

"You have removed AYUSH from Health and family welfare and made it a separate ministry, then are you not going back on your minimum government and maximum governance mantra," asked Maken.

Modi expanded his cabinet Sunday and brought in new ministers and reshuffled portfolios of some others.
