PM must sack senior ministers for conflict of interest: Congress

The Congress on Saturday sought to know from Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he will dismiss some of his senior ministers for allegedly holding the posts of directors in India Foundation, a think-tank run by NSA Ajit Doval’s son Shaurya Doval.

The party also demanded that the Prime Minister should act against them by initiating an inquiry by the CBI against them for allegedly holding office-of-profit, conflict of interest and violating FCRA norms.

The ministers in question include Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu and two junior ministers — Jayant Sinha of Civil Aviation Ministry and M.J. Akbar of External Affairs Ministry.
