Prime minister Narendra Modi need not have to react to everything, says minister of state VK Singh and sees conspiracy behind television channels reporting on Lalit Modi issue. He also dismissed criticism over Modi's silence on the Lalit Modi controversy.

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," Singh said.

He is also the minister of state for external and overseas Indian affairs. 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, he said in reply to a question that the MEA is hiding information.

"The channels have been doing this for the last 17 days. I ask them who has given them a contract for that," he said.

"Those who have to criticise, will do it anyways. So there is no need to talk about that because often unnecessary things are blown out of proportion. These things have no ground," he said.

On the demand for resignation of external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje before commencement of monsoon session of Parliament, he said it is the job of the opposition to speak and let them speak.
