Name the six Ministers, PM urged

NEW DELHI NOV. 10. The Congress today demanded that the Prime Minister name the six Union Ministers, against whom charges of misusing the PSUs had been made.

Announcing a week-long, nationwide agitational programme, the AICC general secretary, Ambika Soni, charged that the media expose of the action of the six Ministers in seeking "undue favours" from the PSUs under the jurisdiction of the Ministries they presided was a matter of "grave concern".

Conveying "deep anger and anguish" over the development, the party said in case the Prime Minister did not declare the names of these Minister by November 14, the Congress top leadership, including CWC members, would ask the President to intervene.

"The nation needs to know the names of these Ministers," she said, at a time when the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance Government was dubbing the PSUs "unviable" and disinvesting its stake in them.
