Allegations against Sushma Swaraj baseless says Jaitley

Allegations against External Affairs Minster Sushma Swaraj on the Lalit Modi issue are “baseless” and the government has a “collective responsibility” for all decisions taken, Finance Minster Arun Jaitley said here on Tuesday.

“Our ministers are capable of taking decisions and all decisions are collective responsibility of the government,” he said at a press conference here jointly addressed with Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

“Let me clarify, all allegations are baseless. The minister and the party chief (Amit Shah) have given statements…she acted bonafide with good intentions. The whole government and party have the same view on this,” he said.
