Ak­bar’s si­lence will mean the al­le­ga­tions are true: Congress

Mid Day - - NATION -

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.
