The ongoing fight between Arun Jaitley and Virbhadra Singh reached new heights over the latter granting undue favours to a hydro power company in which his family allegedly got a Rs 3.9-Crore loan. The Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Sigh has accused BJP leader Jaitley of illegally securing his income tax returns. He also threatened a defamation case.
Singh has said that Jaitley leveled him with “wild” and “baseless” allegations and illegally procuring his I-T return details. Singh said, “Jaitley not only procured details of my income tax returns, which cannot be obtained even under RTI without the consent of the assessee, he flashed them at press conference in Shimla on October 23, 2010, withholding parts of it to suit his political agenda.”
On the other hand Jaitley remained calm and posted in social network after reacting to Singh’s threat to sue him: “Virbhadra Singh has said he would consider filing a defamation action against me. He is certainly entitled to do so. In that event I would be pleading truth as defence and cross-examining him on each case of these issues.”
Jaitley also asked Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to make a public declaration as to why they feel that Singh is innocent. He claimed that he has enough evidence against the CM of Himachal Pradesh.
