The former Haryana Chief Minister has given the BJP spokesman, Vijay Kumar Malhotra, three days "to prove his allegation and within this period he should tender apology otherwise, I will file a defamation suit against him". another statement, Ms. Alva says: "I admit that I, as their MP, had recommended to the Minister two or three deserving cases from my constituency, who had applied in response to newspaper advertisements and had been called for interviews.
Ms. Alva said that "the fact that the Prime Minister has cancelled all these allotments is an admission that something has gone wrong.
The responsibility for this bungling needs to be fixed and corrective measures taken instead of this aimless mud-slinging".
