Natwar Singh quits CongressFebruary 13th, 2008 - 6:55 pm ICT by admin
Jaipur, Feb.13 (ANI): Former External Affairs Minister Natwar Singh today announced that he was quitting from the Congress party.
“Today I quit Congress,” Natwar Singh said at a Jat rally near Jaipur on Wednesday.
The rally was organised by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in memory of Maharaja Surajmal, the former maharaja of Bharatpur.
The decision to quit came even as the Congress said that it wanted Singh to be disqualified and suspended from the Rajya Sabha.
Singh was suspended from the Congress this year after an inquiry indicted him and his son Jagat Singh for their role in Iraq’s oil-for-food scam. (ANI)
