After Pawan Bansal, Law Minister Ashwani Kumar resigns

New Delhi: Law Minister Ashwani Kumar resigned on Friday following the resignation of railway minister Pawan Kumar Bansal.

Ashwani Kumar was under fire from the opposition after the Supreme Court came down heavily on the CBI for allowing the law ministry to vet the draft of CBI probe report on Coalgate.

Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal Friday met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and submitted his resignation after the Congress leadership decided he should go, informed sources said.

According to informed sources, the Congress had planned an exit for Bansal as well as Law Minister Ashwani Kumar, under fire for interfering in the work of the CBI in a coal block allocation probe, in a minor cabinet reshuffle being planned over the next few days.

The Congress, which successfully snatched Karnataka from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on the anti-corruption plank, did not want to send out a wrong signal by showing it was soft on corruption, the sources said.
