"It is totally a political vendetta they have unleashed. Be it our party president Sonia ji, Vice-President Rahul ji or P Chidambaram's son or Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh, everyone is being targeted," the Congress' Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha said.
Singh was making a reference to the National Herald case involving the Gandhis, searches conducted by the ED at the office of Karti Chidambaram, son of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram, in connection with the probe against firms owned by his friends, and recent CBI raids at the official residence of Himachal Pradesh CM Virbhadra Singh with regard to an
alleged disproportionate assets case.
Singh said Congress will fight back and "if they (the NDA government) think they can put pressure like this and they can browbeat us, they are mistaken."
"If (Finance Minister Arun) Jaitley and (PM) Modi are saying it is not vendetta, they are speaking lies," he said. Claiming that he may be the next target, Singh said, "I am prepared. They feel if targeting anyone can improve party's prospects, go after him...Otherwise why are they pushing it? There's nothing in it," he said while making a reference to the National Herald case.
