Akbar’s silence will mean the allegations are true: Congress
BHOPAL: The Congress on Friday demanded that Union Minister, M J Akbar, should come clean on the allegations of sexual harassment levelled against him and said his silence would mean that the charges are true.
“The minister, who is facing allegations (of sexual harassment) should come forward and speak out whether the allegations against him are wrong or right, so that you all (journalists) and society (can) draw a conclusion,” Surjewala told the media.
“If he does not reply or does not want to reply, it will be clear that the ordeals (narrated by the women who have levelled the allegations) are true,” he added. “Such a person should resign,” the Congress spokesperson said.
