With Natwar Singh’s book touching a raw nerve, the Congress Friday stepped up its attack against him. Hitting back at the former foreign minister, the Congress recounted the findings of the Paul Volcker committee which had named him as a non-contractual beneficiary of the Iraqi oil-for-food scam and said the party took an uncompromising and principled stand asking him to resign from the Council of Ministers.
“It was found to be entirely an individual enterprise and adventure of Natwar Singh and family. And there was therefore no option but to take the action which was taken,” Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said. He recounted at length the findings of the Volcker report at the Congress press conference in the fresh offensive against Singh, who had gone for a no-holds-barred attack on Sonia in his autobiography.
Many leaders seized the opportunity to rally behind Sonia. Punjab PCC president Partap Singh Bajwa asked “Congressmen and people of sensibility” to socially boycott Singh. He said Singh’s book is “nothing short of treachery on his part to reveal privileged information and conversations apart from inventing scandalous tales”.
