New Delhi: Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley came out in support of his colleague Sushma Swaraj on the ongoing controversy with regard to PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti praising Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

Confirming that Mufti had indeed praised good governance in Gujarat, Jaitley while narrating the incident where Mufti had done so, said "she narrated an incident in reference to somebody whom she knew, whose work got resolved in half an hour or so as she mentioned."

"I think this a matter of record. The entire National Integration Council heard her. And what Sushmaji has said in this context, I think, reproduces to the best of my memory what Mehboobaji has said," Jaitley told reporters here on Tuesday.

Jaitley also said that "the Home Minister during the course of the NIC meeting had announced that the entire proceedings are being tape recorded and the entire transcript would be sent to all the members."
