New Delhi: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Monday took potshots at Congress which is under Opposition’s intensive attack over the demand of Railway Minister PK Bansal's resignation.

“After 17 years, Congress gets Railway Ministry. Result is a scam! Does anyone still have a doubt that Congress is the problem?” he wrote on twitter.

Notably, Bansal's nephew Vijay Singla was arrested last week by the CBI for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs.90 lakh. The bribe was paid to him by two people for getting a senior railway officer, Mahesh Kumar, appointed as a member of the powerful Railway Board.

Meanwhile, the Congress on Sunday ruled out Bansal's resignation and said no action would be taken against him immediately, even as the opposition continued to press for his ouster.
