It's passing the parcel once again in L'affaire Lalit Modi. A day after the Congress said the UPA had written to the UK government to send ex- IPL chief Lalit Modi back, the MEA has now admitted that no attempt was actually made to seek the extradition of Lalit Modi.

"The MEA revoked the passport of Mr Lalit Modi at the request of the Enforcement Directorate on March 3, 2011. At that time or subsequently no request was made from the ED to the MEA to seek the extradition of Mr Lalit Modi," the MEA said in an official statement to Outlook.

Here are eight things we learnt about Sushma Swaraj:

  1. Sushma Swaraj's husband Swaraj Kaushal is India's youngest governor ever. A senior criminal lawyer practicing in the Supreme Court, Kaushal was made the Governor of Mizoram in 1990 at the age of 37 as a reward for his contribution to the Mizo peace accord, according to The Economic Times.

It was yet another Saturday evening in Delhi.

Among the many exciting things happening in the capital, apparently, was the opening of a new gym, where one Mr Robert Vadra happened to be present.

Which resulted in this:

There's never a dull moment on Times Now.

While the nation had given up wanting to hear even a word more of the 'analyses' on the MaHa results  and the BJP's stupendous performance in Maharashtra and Haryana last night, the Congress party fielded a new spokesperson, intriguingly named Americai V. Narayanan.

Informed by the same spirit of enquiry the channel is justifibaly famous for, the editor in chief of Times Now, Arnab Goswami, asked, on behalf of the nation, whether the Congress party has been punished for supporting corruption. Mr Americai responded:

Modi said it had come to his knowledge that some money had exchanged hands for the posting of an official. Modi asked him to return the money. The son and his father certainly got the message.

The rumours in the Delhi grapevine had of course done the rounds earlier, but once it reached the mainstream press gossip columns, it was soon on Twitter, with the ever-faithful Modi bhaktas presenting it as the great deed of their Great Leader.
