Law minister Salman Khurshid on Sunday vehemently rejected allegations of financial irregularities in an NGO run by his wife Louise Khurshid, saying he would leave politics if the charges were found to be true.
"You think the law minister is going to forge signatures for this purpose. I will leave politics if these signatures are found to be forged," Salman Khurshid told Karan Thapar in an interview broadcast on CNN-IBN.
He was responding to charges by India Against Corruption (IAC) leader Arvind Kejriwal over alleged financial irregularities in his NGO, Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust.
"Will you (media) leave journalism if these signatures are found to be forged? The time has come for you (media) to begin to answer these questions," Salman Khurshid said.
India Against Corruption (IAC) leader Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday announced an indefinite agitation to demand the resignation and arrest of Salman Khurshid over the alleged financial irregularities in his NGO.
