PM evasive on Maran`s fate in the cabinet

Manmohan Singh was evasive on the future of Textiles Minister in the Cabinet.



New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
was on Monday evasive on the future of Textiles Minister Dayanidhi
Maran in the Cabinet in the wake of allegations that he could
have indirectly benefitted by pay-offs in a telecom deal.

"All these matters are being looked into by law
enforcement agencies. They should be allowed to do their work
without fear or favour," Singh told reporters.

He was responding when asked whether he has sought
resignation of Maran following the allegation of corruption
against him.

Earlier in the day, Maran came out with a statement,
second within a week, rejecting allegations that he had arm
twisted former Aircel Chief C Sivasankaran to sell his stake
to Maxis.

His statement came as CBI recorded Sivasankaran`s
statement at an undisclosed location.
