Speaking to reporters who met him at his house, he said: “The people of my constituency know me. Those who have levelled allegations against me will repent for their mistake.”
Reply to Speaker’s notice.

“I have replied to the Speaker’s notice. I cannot reveal details of my reply now as the inquiry by the seven-member committee is on. I work according to my conscience. My conscience tells me that I have not committed any mistake.”

“To avoid embarrassment to my party and the government, I resigned from my post. Unnecessarily, allegations have been levelled against me. I am also hurt by the way the media reacted during the incident. It took a lot of time for me to come out of the shock. Hence, I could not visit my district all these days.”

“The people of my constituency will not let me down. They are confident that I will come out clean. With that confidence, I am entering the constituency. It is left to the party high command to induct me back into the Cabinet, after I get a clean chit from the inquiry committee.”
