    Indian Textile Minister
    Dayanidhi Maran has
    resigned following
    allegations of
    involvement in the
    country's biggest
    corruption scandal, media reports say.
    Mr Maran, who belongs to a key ally of the governing
    Congress party, is the
    second minister to be
    embroiled in the scandal over telecoms licences.

    >> His DMK party colleague, former telecoms minister
    Andimuthu Raja, is already in jail on corruption charges."

    The multi-billion dollar scandal has badly hurt the
    government's reputation. India may have lost as much as $39bn in revenue,
    a sum equivalent to the annual defence budget, the state auditor has said. Mr Maran is being investigated as part of a broader probe into
    wrongdoing over a decade.

    He has denied allegations that he coerced the founder
    of the mobile phone firm Aircel to sell off his stake to a firm favoured by the
    minister.
