Natwar slams colleagues who spoke against him

December 08, 2005 20:23 IST

Ticking off Congress leaders who spoke against him in the wake of the Volcker controversy, former External Affairs minister K Natwar Singhon Thursdaysaid he did not attach any significance to them.

"I do not attach any significance toCongress leaders who have spoken against me. Anyone can go on television and say whatever they like," he said here.

About his initial reluctance to resign from the Cabinet, Singh said this was because he had not committed any wrong.

After the Congress Steering Committee's decision to remove him, Union Minister Kapil Sibbal and Congress General Secretary Ambika Soni had said that this was enough indication for Natwar Singh to resign from the government.
