Sexual misconduct allegations wild and baseless: MJ Akbar

New Delhi, Oct 14 (IENews) Union Minister of State for External affairs MJ Akbar plans to take legal action against those women who alleged sexual misconduct against him. He has termed the allegations as  termed ‘wild and baseless allegations’.

Talking to a TV channel here, M J Akbar’s lawyer said the minister would take legal action over those who had levelled allegations of sexual harassment against him.

Earlier, the Minister, who returned to India on Sunday morning from a foreign trip, issued a statement to a section of the media in which he termed the allegations as ‘baseless’.

“Accusation without evidence has become a viral fever among some sections. Whatever be the case, now that I have returned, my lawyers will look into these wild and baseless allegations in order to decide our future course of legal action,'” Akbar said.

Terming the allegations against him as a case of political vendetta, Akbar asked, “Why has this storm risen a few months before a general elections? Is there an agenda? You be the judge. These false, baseless and wild allegations have caused irreparable damage to my reputation and goodwill.”

“Lies do not have legs, but they do contain poison, which can be whipped into frenzy. This is deeply distressing. I will be taking appropriate legal action,” he added.
