Home minister Rajnath Singh will quit politics if ‘rumours’ turn true

He said rumours about alleged wrong doings by his family members have been floating around for the last fortnight.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday scotched “rumours” of misconduct on his or his family’s part and said he would quit politics and sit at home if such charges are even prima facie proved.

He said rumours about alleged wrong doings by his family members have been floating around for the last fortnight.

“In the last 15—20 days, there have been continuous rumours in the air about me and my family. I thought rumours have no basis and these will end in some days.”

Speaking at a hurriedly called interaction with journalists outside his office in North Block, Mr. Rajnath said: “But I am seeing that these rumours are gaining momentum day—by—day. I want to assure the nation that the day allegations, even prima facie or even small, are proven against me or my family, I will quit politics and public life and sit at home.”
