Pal also levelled other allegations and said he will write to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for a proper inquiry into the matter.

Khurshid, however, rejected allegations of any misuse of funds. Khurshid, who is the Lok Sabha MP from Farrukhabad, called Pal greedy and fickle-minded.

Meanwhile, when asked whether he finds Narendra Modi as the potential prime ministerial candidate, Pal said, “It would be decided by the people of the country and not by him.”

He, however, said that there are no permanent friends or foes in politics. Pal also said that he would seek re-election from the Domariyaganj seat.

65-year-old Pal quit the Congress last week. Pal said that after serving in Congress for so long, he had been getting a feeling that he is not being able to put forth his views and suggestions and there was a problem in communication with the leadership.
