Will try my best to do whatever is right: Sibal

HRD Minister Kapil Sibal, who was given the additional charge of Telecom Ministry, on Monday said he will try his best to do whatever is right in his new role and every step taken must be "carefully choreographed".

"We will try our best to do whatever is right as we move forward as we try to take our responsibility properly," he told reporters. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh gave the Telecom portfolio to Sibal which fell vacant after A Raja resigned last night over the 2G spectrum scandal.

"You must be watched at every step as you move forward because that is the purpose of accountability and every step you move forward must be carefully choreographed," he said.

He felt that the new assignment given to him was like any other challenge to him.

"Any Ministry alloted is a challenge. The HRD Ministry was a challenge to me so was the Ministries of Science and Technology and Earth Sciences," he said.

Sibal, who is likely to take over as the Telecom Minister on Tuesday, said he would not like to comment on anything about the Ministry till he assumes charge.

"Let me formally take over...let me understand the issues, then I will come to you".

The lawyer-turned-politician was last week given the additional charge of Ministries of Science and Technology and Earth Sciences, which fell vacant after incumbent Prithviraj Chavan was made Chief Minister of Maharashtra.

When asked why he was chosen by the Prime Minister for the additional charge of the Telecom Ministry, Sibal said he does not know the reason.
