New Delhi, March 27 (IANS) No central minister is engaged in any private business and all of them are “committed” to their official work, the government told Parliament on Monday.

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi dismissed Samajwadi Party’s Rajya Sabha member Naresh Agrawal’s allegation that Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and other ministers were engaged in their personal businesses while being part of the Union Council of Ministers.

“It’s factually wrong. All ministers are committed to their assigned work,” Naqvi asserted.
