Congress party general secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday called for External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to hand in her resignation on ‘moral grounds’, after she admitted that she had helped expedite the travel documents of former Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi, despite the red alert issued by the government.

“I respect Sushma Swaraj and I did not expect this from her. This whole situation is very serious, where the government is helping someone who has been proved guilty. The government should come clear on this issue,” Digvijay Singh told ANI.

“I appeal to her to resign on moral grounds,” he added.

Sharing her thoughts on twitter, Swaraj had earlier in the day said that she had taken a humanitarian view of Modi’s case since his wife was suffering from cancer, adding that she believes that giving an Indian citizen ’emergency travel documents’ cannot spoil relations between India and the UK.
