New Delhi,August 7:Congress president Sonia Gandhi today rejected External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's statement in the Lok Sabha over Lalit Modi issue.
"Sushma Swaraj is an expert in theatrics, indulging drama,"said Sonia Gandhi outside the Parliament on being asked about her reaction to the statement.
She also said that "she would have done my best to help the lady Minal Modi, Lalit Modi's wife, but not by breaking the law."
This was in response to Ms. Swaraj's question whether Ms. Gandhi would have been able to refuse to help Lalit Modi over the illness of his wife.
The uncharacteristically personal and aggressive tone of the Congress president marked a renewed aggression by the party which continued its protest against the suspension of 25 of its MPs from the Lok Sabha.
