PUDUCHERRY: Terming the silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the allegations levelled against a few women ministers of his cabinet as disquieting, All India Mahila Congress (AIMC) president, Shobha Oza, on Tuesday demanded to know why the PM, who has something to say on everything under the Sun, is tight-lipped.

Speaking to reporters here on the sidelines of a book release function, she said Sushma Swaraj, External Affairs Minister, has allegedly helped the `1,700 crore IPL scam tainted Lalit Modi in getting British travel documents to travel to Portugal.

The Delhi High Court has taken cognizance of a complaint filed against the Union Human Resources Minster, Smriti Irani, for submitting false affidavit regarding her educational qualification filed before the Election Commission (ECI), she said.

Serious allegations have also been made against Maharashtra Minister Pankaja Munde, she added.

The AIMC chief said Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had pledged zero tolerance against corruption, was yet to break his silence on the allegations against his ministerial colleagues.
