Khurshid puts off Haj pilgrimage

October 21, 2012 12:43 IST

Law Minister Salman Khurshid, who is embroiled in a controversy over allegations of misappropriation of funds by his trust, has put off his Haj pilgrimage, according to sources close to him.

His decision to put off the week-long visit for Haj also comes amid speculation of an impending reshuffle in the Union Cabinet.

Khurshid was to leave to for Haj on Sunday and was to return at the end of the next week.

He has been under attack from Arvind Kejriwal following a TV sting which alleged that the Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust run by the Minister and his wife had misappropriated funds meant for providing equipment to the disabled.

Khurshid had refuted the allegations even as the Uttar Pradesh government is probing them.
