New Delhi: Reiterating that his conscience is clear, Shashi Tharoor, who quit as minister of external affairs on Sunday following a controversy over his role in the Kochi Indian Premier League (IPL) team, said he had sought an investigation into the charges against him.
“... I know that I have done nothing improper or unethical, let alone illegal,” Tharoor said in a statement in the Lok Sabha. “In view of the ongoing political controversy, I have no desire to be an embarrassment to the government and believe that my departure at this stage will allow the prime minister and his cabinet colleagues to focus on greater challenges facing our nation.”
