Prime News, National (New Delhi), August 21:- BJP national spokesperson GVL Narasimha on Wednesday said that senior Congress leader and former Union Minister P Chidambaram is behaving like fugitive businessmen Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi by not cooperating with the central probe agencies in connection with an alleged corruption case probe involving him linked to the INX Media.
Commenting on the recent developments in the case, Narsimha said, ”Chidambaram was given a free-hand by the Gandhi family to go ahead in the INX Media case. By not cooperating with the central agencies, the senior Congress leader is behaving like Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya. No one will be spared.”
The reactions from the BJP national spokesperson came after the Supreme Court refused to grant any immediate relief to the Congress leader while responding to his plea for protection from arrest in the INX Media case.
Chidambaram’s lawyers had challenged the Delhi High Court’s order which rejected his request for protection from arrest.
The Supreme Court said that Chidambaram’s petition will be placed before the Chief Justice of India. The CBI, meanwhile, told the bench that it is a “monumental magnitude of money laundering case”.
