Indian prime minister on defensive over WikiLeaks

India's prime minister is struggling to defend himself amid a growing furor over a WikiLeaks cable alleging government corruption.
The opposition harshly criticized Manmohan Singh's government during hours of parliamentary debate Wednesday following the release of a U.S. Embassy cable alleging the ruling party bought lawmakers' votes to pass a crucial nuclear deal.
Singh told a raucous Parliament that no one from his party acted unlawfully during the 2008 vote.
Singh's government has been hit by a series of corruption scandals in recent months.
