Sushma attacks Journo for targeting Her on Lalit Modi issue

New Delhi, June 15: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today came out full throttle attacking Navika Kumar, the political editor of television news channel "Times Now", which has been running a news campaign targeting the minister on Lalit Modi issue. Swaraj tweeted- "Look who is preaching propriety - of all the persons Navika Kumar!"

Yesterday, Swaraj had tweeted-

"process in 2013 - one year before I became a Minister".

"What benefit did I pass on to Lalit Modi - that he could sign consent papers for surgery of his wife suffering from Cancer?"

"He was in London. After his wife's surgery, he came back to London. What is it that I changed?"

Sushma Swaraj is at the centre of a political storm after acknowledging that she helped controversial former IPL chief Lalit Modi procure British travel documents on "humanitarian grounds", prompting calls for her resignation from opposition parties. Lalit Modi had sought help as her wife is suffering from cancer and needed to travel for treatment. He is an accused in IPL scam and has been evading probe by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
