Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said his party is ‘pained and concerned’ about the attitude of the government and asked as to what the Centre had done for the farmers since coming to power.
Taunting PM Narendra Modi, Sibal said the head of the government must explain through his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ to the nation as to what took place in the last two years.
Sibal said what BJP is doing is to target Sonia and then target Rahul, besides other senior Congress leaders like P Chidambaram, Bhupinder Hooda, Harish Rawat, Virbhadra Singh and Ashok Chavan.
“Courts are still there in India. We will approach courts and file a petition demanding striking down of the imposition of the President’s Rule. We will approach the High Court,” said Kapil Sibal.
He was speaking at a book launch on the life of Mohammed Aamir Khan, who was kidnapped from Old Delhi in 1998 and framed as a terrorist.
“AJL is also Congress. Thirty per cent of AJL is owned by trusts controlled by Congressmen. The Gandhis don’t get anything. Nothing comes to the shareholders of YIL,” says Kapil Sibal on National Herald case.
Jaitley said he had “consistently maintained that this chargesheet was full of fabricated facts.”
The Supreme Court ordered deletion of the matter from its September 21 list.
“His (Sibal) opposing CBI probes amount to double speak and will embarrass us,” Congress Legislature Party leader Pradeep Mathur has written.
Sibal alleged that Lalit Modi had rigged the tender conditions to favour the industrialist.
Abdul Manna, the Congress leader who had originally moved the petition for CBI inquiry in the SC, said: “It was really unfortunate to see a senior Congress leader appearing for Madan Mitra.
Sibal said he was surprised at the MP High Court ‘for turning a blind eye to the deaths that were taking place’.
Sibal had apparently come back to India only for this case, to try his best to get Subrata Roy out of the jail after 15 months.
Former Union Minister Kapil Sibal on Saturday criticised the Narendra Modi government’s foreign policy, saying there was no clear agenda in the PM’s foreign visits. “There is no clear agenda. At times, they embrace Pakistan, at other times they say they don’t want to talk. Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has openly said that he […]
“How do you trust a prime minister who said one thing before the elections and does exactly the opposite after the elections?” asks Sibal.
