Congress leader pressurised me to help coal scam accused: Swaraj

Earlier in the morning, Swaraj said a senior Congress leader had pressed her hard to give diplomatic passport to a scam accused Congress leader.

"A senior congress leader was pressing me hard to give diplomatic passport to the coal scam accused Santosh Bagrodia," Swaraj tweeted.

Yesterday, she had offered to give a statement in Parliament about Congress' allegations over her links with former IPL chief Lalit Modi.

She also said she will disclose the name of the Congress leader in Parliament.

"I will disclose the name of the leader on the floor of the house," she said in another tweet.

Swaraj is facing ire of the opposition led by Congress which is demanding her resignation for helping controversial former IPL Chief Lalit Modi get travel documents.

The Congress yesterday disrupted Rajya Sabha over the issue on the opening day of the Monsoon Session. It rejected the government offer of a statement by Swaraj and a debate, saying she must resign first.
