Farukhabad: Union Law minister Salman
Khurshid defended his Cabinet colleague Beni Prasad
Verma on Friday for his minority sub-quota remarks, saying he had made
the comments as a Congress leader and not as a minister.

"Whatever Beni said was in his capacity as Congress
leader and not as a minister. He made his comments on party
manifesto, which mentions the reservation issue," he told
reporters here.

Elections are fought on the basis of party manifesto and
if it is not talked about what else one would say, Khurshid
asked.

"Reservation for Muslims will be increased and if the EC
wants, it can now issue a notice to me," Verma recently said
at a rally in Kaimganj, triggering a controversy.
