"PM Modi: 'I am sure Arun Jaitley would come out clean as Advaniji did in Hawala case'. But would Jaitley resign as Advaniji did ? No question!," tweeted senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh.
CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury claimed that Modi has signalled to Jaitley to resign in the wake of DDCA row by citing Advani's example in the Hawala case.
"By drawing a parallel with Advani, the Prime Minister is giving a hint to Arun Jaitley that he should resign, get himself cleared and come back. I read it as a signal to Jaitley that you also do the same thing", he told reporters.

BJP was quick to dismiss such claims. "There is no parallel between charges against Advani and Jaitley. CBI had registered a case, launched a criminal investigation and Advani quit as an MP on moral grounds. There is no criminal probe against Jaitley. These are allegations leveled by opposition which are unsupported by evidence.
"In fact, the Serious Fraud Investigation Office probe was carried out into these allegations when Congress was in power. It stated that there was no fraud or cheating. Due to political rivalry, Congress is ignoring its government's inquiry. It has no moral right to level such a charge," BJP secretary Shrikant Sharma said.
