I have done no wrong, says Ashwani Kumar

By The Assam Tribune

New Delhi, May 11 (IANS): Former Law Minister Ashwani Kumar said on Saturday that he had done no wrong but had resigned from the Cabinet because Prime Minister Manmohan Singh wanted him to.

He told the media here that he quit on Friday "to put an end to unnnecessary controversy" regarding allegations of interference in the CBI's probe into the coal blocks allocation.

He insisted that the Supreme Court had made no adverse comments against him.

"My conscience remains clear and I believe I will stand vindicated because divine justice ordains that truth and justice will prevail."

Congress takes pride over Bansal, Ashwani exit:The Congress on Saturday sought to take a high moral ground over the resignation of ministers PK Bansal and Ashwani Kumar, saying they quit though the charges against them have not been proved in a court of law.

The two ministers resigned on Friday after the Congress leadership asked them to go following allegations of corruption and impropriety.

Bansal is under a cloud after his nephew was arrested for accepting a bribe for promising a Railway Board post to an official. Kumar is accused of interfering in the investigation into the coal blocks allocation.
