Sushma further stressed that as a minister she is accountable to the Parliament, adding that she helps people on daily basis.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday reiterated that she never requested or recommended travel documents for former IPL chief Lalit Modi, who is facing allegations of tax evasion. “You got it right. I am saying this time and again that I never requested or recommended travel documents for Lalit Modi,” Sushma said in a series of tweets. “I left this to the UK Government to decide under their own laws and regulations. And that is what they did,” she added.

Sushma further stressed that as a minister she is accountable to the Parliament, adding that she helps people on a daily basis. “As a Minister I am accountable to the Parliament. That is the only forum to inform the nation,” said the External Affairs Minister. “I help people every day. That too on a single tweet,” she added. The External Affairs Minister further accused the Congress of blocking a debate in the Parliament over the issue.
