Pune: Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Saturday said the resignations of Union Ministers Ashwani Kumar and Pawan Kumar Bansal would not pose any danger to the UPA government.

"There is no danger to UPA government. The decisions taken by the Prime Minister and the two ministers are right. We are set to complete full term," he said.

Asked about reports that he was likely to be brought back to Maharashtra to replace Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan before the next elections, Shinde said he was not aware of any such proposal. "If there was such a proposal, I would have come to know as I am a member of the core group. There are rumors floating in Maharashtra," he said.

Talking about the recent incursion by Chinese soldiers, the Home Minister said the deployment of Indo-Tibetan Border Police along the Indo-China border would remain unchanged. "ITBP is watchful. We have LOC drawn on Indo-Pak border. We are continuing our negotiations with China on the disputed border areas and handed over maps to them," he said.

The Union Minister was in Pune to lay the foundation stone of the housing complex for National Disaster Response Force personnel at Maval taluka area in the city.
