New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday held that there can be no compromise in a rape case in the name of promising wedlock.

The party also wanted the Prime Minister to answer whether any Union Ministers relative received any job offer from Lalit Modi recently. Pitching for full disclosure by the government, Congress chief spokesman Randeep Surjewala claimed that Swaraj has herself admitted that the meeting with the UK High Commissioner had taken place.

He said "moral and constitutional propriety" demands that the Prime Minister ask Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to resign. He also demanded resignation of HRD Minister Smriti Irani who is embroiled in a controversy over her educational qualifications. On charges made by Lalit Modi against Congress leaders, Surjewala said the former IPL chief was trying to divert attention from the Congress demand of resignation of Swaraj and Raje. "The chhota Modi is helping bada Modi. He has become the 'sankatmochak' (troubleshooter).... The chhota Modi is acting at the instance of someone within the government and the BJP.... These are preposterous allegations. "He is trying to divert attention from the demand of resignation," the spokesperson said, asserting that the Congress will "not lose focus and will not relent and will not stop". The Congress attack has sharpened at a time when the monsoon session of Parliament was just 20 days away and is expected to be a stormy affair if the Lalitgate row continued. Other demands by Surjewala included release of all correspondence made by the Congress-led UPA with the UK over the issue of extradition of Lalit Modi and the letters written by former Finance Minister P Chidambaram to the UK authorities on the issue. The Congress leader said that Swaraj should also make a full disclosure of how many times she had telephonic talk with the "fugitive", how many times she or any member of her family have met him or have been in touch with e-mail and other communication. Taking a dig at the Prime Minister, he said that Narendra Modi, who once spoke of "scam-free India" was in "maunyog" (silence) despite the fact that he has promised to the people to provide corruption-free and transparent governance.

Digvijay wants CBI to probe Vyapam scam
Congress leader Digvijay Singh has approached the Supreme Court seeking a CBI probe into the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh in which 25 accused died under mysterious circumstances. Singh told a press conference on Tuesday that he had filed a petition in the apex court contending that the Madhya Pradesh High Court-appointed SIT to probe the Vyapam issue was "ineffective" given the magnitude of the scam and involvement of top officials. He has sought strict action in the matter given the fact that it involved the appointment of some 1,30,000 people in state government services over a period of time for which over one crore people have applied. "If former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala can be sent to jail for irregularities in appointment of 130 teachers, the role of MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan needs to be probed," he said. Asked whether the buck stops at the MP chief minister, he sarcastically said that Chouhan was a "poor little guy" who did not notice anything amiss despite a lot of things happening around him. The Congress has accused Chouhan of complicity in the scam. Vyapam scam is a massive admission and recruitment scandal involving politicians, bureaucrats and middlemen. Several politicians including former education minister Laxmikant Sharma, a host of officials and scores of aspirants have been arrested in the case.

Siliguri: The death toll in landslides triggered by incessant rain in West Bengal's Darjeeling hills has risen to 28, an official said on Wednesday. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced a compensation of Rs.4 lakh to the kin of the deceased and Rs.1.25 lakh each to those injured in the wake of heavy rain since Tuesday. 'So far, we have recovered 28 bodies. Several others are still missing,' Darjeeling Superintendent of Police Amit Javalgi said. According to Javalgi, 20 bodies were recovered from Mirik, six from Kalimpong and one each from Sukhiapokhri and Gorubathan areas of the district. The landslides have badly affected National Highways 31 and 10, snapping the link with Sikkim. The heavy rainfall also washed away the Rohini-Garidhura bridge. Banerjee assured all assistance to the affected people. 'Money can never compensate the loss of life. However, the state government has decided to pay Rs.4 lakh to kin of those who have died and Rs.1.25 lakh to the injured. The government will provide all kinds of assistance for the rehabilitation of those affected by the calamity,' Banerjee said. 'We are constantly monitoring the situation. The home secretary has already reached there. I am rushing to the area,' the chief minister said at Bahrampur in Murshidabad district. In Jalpaiguri district, at least 5,000 people were affected by water-logging and their misery was compounded by the release of over 5,000 cusecs of water from the Teesta barrage. The district administration has issued a red alert as the Teesta and Torsa rivers touched danger levels. While the Sashastra Seema Bal and disaster management personnel are engaged in relief and rescue operations, North Bengal Development Minister Gautam Deb said the army had been called in to help in the rescue efforts.
