Dismissing criticism over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence on the Lalit Modi controversy, Union minister VK Singh on Monday said it is not necessary for the Prime Minister to react to everything and he will speak when the right time comes.

Why do you want to force upon him that he should speak and speak? It is not appropriate to react to everything. If a news channel is running something, is it right on the part of the Prime Minister to speak on that? When the right time will come, the Prime Minister will speak.
– VK Singh

In reply to a question that the ministry of external affairs has not responded to an RTI query on Lalit Modi, he said RTI has some rules and the ministry must have given answer in accordance with that.

Those who have to criticise, will do it anyway. So there is no need to talk about that because often unnecessary things are blown out of proportion. These things have no ground. Some channels have been running news on Lalit Modi episode for over half a month now and they must have been acting at someone’s behest. The channels have been doing this for the last 17 days. I ask them who has given them a contract for that. – VK Singh
