IndiaSingh declines to resign over Ghandhi’s remarks

NEW DELHI: Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday declined to resign after the ruling Congress Party Vice President Rahul Gandhi described a recent executive order passed by Singh’s cabinet to shield convicted politicians as “nonsense”.

Gandhi’s comments had sparked speculation about Manmohan Singh’s future.


The order was approved by the government last month to prevent MPs being ejected from parliament if convicted of serious crimes. But it was expected to be withdrawn by the cabinet later today (Wednesday).
