Will Fight Back Charges With Sufficient Proof: Khurshid

Amid protests by Arvind Kejriwal, Law Minister Salman Khurshid today returned to the capital from abroad and said he will fight back the allegations that his NGO siphoned off money meant for disabled with sufficient proof.

The Law Minister faced protests at IGI airport here this morning where activists of Kejriwal-led India Against Corruption (IAC) raised slogans against him and attempted to show black flags.

Khurshid, who was in London for the past few days, denied the allegations levelled by a TV channel and Kejriwal's IAC that the Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust owned by him and his wife Louise was involved in cases of financial misappropriation and forgery.

"I will fight back the allegations with sufficient proof," he told reporters on arrival.

The protest by Kejriwal and disabled people demanding the resignation of Khurshid entered the third today.

The protesters, who were detained two days ago and released yesterday, continued their protest at Parliament Street and raised the pitch saying they will sit there till Khurshid resigns from the cabinet.

Khurshid's wife Louise, the project director of the NGO Dr Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust, had lashed out at Kejriwal yesterday, terming the allegations of "money bungling" as "baseless innuendos" and accused him of "doing politics using the shoulders of the disabled".

Supporters of India Against Corruption staged a protest outside Khurshid's residence on Kushak Road where police has stepped up security.

A group of seven IAC activists, including a woman, shouted slogans against Khurshid and waived black flags. They were subsequently detained by police and taken away in a bus.

 Give some time to Salman guys.. He needs to manufacture his proof and needs the approval of Saint Sonia for the same. All that takes time. Dear IAC folks, Congress is a HIGHLY SHEKKULAR Party, they want to celebrate the Dusshera and Bakrid together so give them a holiday and wait til festivities end, you will be given some proof (Made in house)

Looking forward to it. Also donot forget the defamtion lawsuit. If you already know that you have done anything wrong, you donot need proof to file the lawsuit.

 Report of an  officer dated march,11 was sent on the trust to ND while he retired in Jan,11. That is enough proof that Mrs and Mr Khursid jointly exploited on the grants from social welfare department. Is he not ashamed to live on the charities of the VIGALANKAR. If he produces something, then the UP government is fraud and if UP government is firm on its correspondence, Mrs and Mr.khursids are frauds parasiting on the tax money of indianpublic. Wasnik is dragging his remarks on the note sheet of the file. Under UPAII, forging, defalcation, loot etc., are nothing uncommon. MMS will be happy within himself that what he cannot openly make out, some one public is abe to do.

Salman says he will come up with evidence? So we have to wait until he gets the evidence is created and produced while staying in the Law minster's chair. The Law minister will get all the documents sitting in his office we know, just wait and watch they can easily cheat the common man.
