Despite allegations of conflict of interest levelled by the opposition parties against External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday has said that the duo would not step down. According to a report in The Indian Express, Singh has said that the government was not a Congress government and that no minister would resign due to the Lalit Modi controversy. “Our ministers do not have to resign; This is not their (Congress’) government, this is NDA government,” said Singh. The Opposition parties have planned on disrupting business in the next month’s Budget session of Parliament if the government does not take action against Raje and Swaraj. A three-week Parliament session will commence from July 21 as per a government announcement on Wednesday.
