New Delhi, June 16: Congress on Tuesday stuck to its demand for sacking of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for helping Lalit Modi get travel documents, alleging that the "suit boot ki sarkaar" was all out to save a person accused of violations and misappropriation of crores of rupees.

"The BJP, the External Affairs Minister and the whole government have come out to save an accused of the Enforcement Directorate. The suit boot ki sarkar is doing everything to save an economic offender," Congress spokesperson Ajoy Kumar told reporters here.

BJP will have to answer to the people, Kumar said.

Taking a dig at Prime Minister, he said that Narendra Modi should speak out on this issue in his next 'Mann ki Baat' address on the All India Radio.

On Monday, the Congress had charged the entire BJP and the government with "aiding and abetting" Lalit Modi, with "tacit approval" of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and demanded explanation from him.
