As the NDA government and BJP battle to contain the fallout of the revelations involving Lalit Modi, Sushma Swaraj is set to head off for the US on June 20 as planned.

Swaraj is to lead the International Yoga Day celebrations in New York on June 21. “As of now, the minister’s travel plans are in place. There is no clearing of her schedule. She will be travelling by Air India,” an official said.

The official said the minister was also going about her daily schedule in a “business-as-usual” manner. On Tuesday, she flagged off the first batch of Kailash Mansarovar Yatra from the new route, though media was kept out and only cameras allowed at the event.
