Reflecting the growing unease in the ruling dispensation over the increasing judicial scrutiny of institutions such as the CBI,Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh Monday sought to question judicial observations such as “caged parrot” made by the Supreme Court for the CBI.

“By calling CBI a parrot in cage,then a Central Administrative Tribunal bench in Bangalore calling the IB a chicken! Now I have a question to the people in general: are we not belittling our institutions? That’s it,I want you to respond. I will request you to try and get access to all those who are calling our institutions chicken or parrot. You should take reaction from them also (sic),” Singh told reporters before tweeting the same line.

His remarks came in the backdrop of the apex court calling the CBI a “caged parrot” during a hearing of the coal blocks case last week.

BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said that instead of blaming the judiciary,the Congress should think of the series of scams under the UPA.
