Pawan Bansal, Ashwani Kumar quit government

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Scandal-hit Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal and Law Minister Ashwani Kumar quit on Friday, adding to speculation the prime minister may have to call an early election after the furore paralysed parliament and forced the delay of economic reforms.

Bansal had been widely expected to step down after police arrested his nephew on suspicion of accepting a bribe in a case that was seen as embarrassing to the Congress party-led government, which has been battered by a series of corruption scandals.
