“For a politician, to command people’s trust is the biggest responsibility. What morality demands that is ‘rajdharma’ and need to maintain probity in public life.” Mr Advani was quoted as having told the Bengali daily Anandabazar Patrika. Ms Swaraj and Ms Raje are embroiled in the Lalit Modi controversy over extending help to the tainted former IPL boss in connection with his travel documents in the UK triggering demands by the Congress for their resignation.
Mr Advani did not want to comment on the controversy involving Ms Swaraj and Ms Raje.
“I am far away from all this. So I don’t have anything to comment. I am not in the decision making and so I have no comments to offer in the matter,” he added.
