"As far as impropriety allegation is concerned, I don't buy that logic. It was just a case of compassionate intervention for a humanitarian cause. That's all," Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters at the Cabinet briefing.

He also said that party chief Amit Shah, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley have already spoken on the issue and he has nothing more to say.

With regard to the surfacing of a document in which Vasundhara Raje allegedly backed Lalit Modi's immigration plea, Prasad appeared a bit guarded.

"As regards to the Rajasthan issue, the details will have to be enquired into. The details will have to be taken," he said, recalling that the Chief Minister had already spoken on the matter yesterday.

Prasad also took potshots at former Finance Minister P Chidambaram, who today demanded release of all letters written to British authorities on the Lalit Modi case during the UPA rule which he said will answer accusations against Congress and him.

"I think Chidambaram is becoming wiser after losing power. That red corner, blue notice or a shade of blue notice was pending for many years," Prasad added.

Asserting that his take is very clear on the issue, the Union Minister said,"The proceedings against Mr (Lalit) Modi have been explained by the Finance Minister yesterday.
