New Delhi, Oct 14: Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid along with wife Louise overruled all corruption allegations against his trust Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust while attending a press conference in New Delhi on Sunday, Oct 14.

The minister addressed four allegations which have been hurled against his trust which he claimed is a part of his life. The minister also criticised Hindi TV news channel, Aaj Tak, the sister channel of India Today owned by Arun Poorie.

"I am clarifying because allegations are being made against an organisation I am deeply involved with," said Khurshid while clarifying his stand on the whole controversy.

Defending himself and his wife, Khurshid said, "I will establish that the core issue is clear.Core issue is Rs71 Lakh was given to trust, no camps were held, money diverted."

Shoeing pictures of officials present in camps held by Khurshid's trust to media persons, the law minister also asserted, "Camps were held in Bulandshahar, Etawah. We held camps for differently-abled regularly."

"TV channel offered to play our side of story thrice," said Khurshid while expressing his disappointment with the TV news channel. He also added, "Want to figure out why some are different from the others. We had no choice but to file a defamation case against Aaj Tak in the High Court."

Without taking Arvind Kejriwal's name directly, the law minister also slammed the social activist-turned-politician during the press conference. Showing his rage against Kejriwal, Khurshid chided, "Won't answer anyone on streets."
