Cong's Allegation False, Mischievous And Motivated: BJP MP

BJP MP Abhishek Singh, son of Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh, today rejected as "false, mischievous and politically motivated" the Congress charge against him that he held offshore accounts and asserted that he held no investment or share in any foreign company.

"I categorically deny the allegations of Congress party which is false, mischievous and politically motivated. In fact, Congress had made similar allegations in the past also which I had unequivocally.

"For the purpose of record, I will once again while denying these allegations like to reiterate that neither do I have any foreign account nor any investment/share in any foreign company," he said in a statement.

At a press conference earlier in the day, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh had cited a previous report of International Consortium of Investigative Journalists to allege Singh was holding offshore assets.

BJP also rejected the Congress attack on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley as "false and foolish".

Ramesh had demanded that Jaitley "recuse" himself from probe into Panama Paper leaks citing his sports promoter Lokesh Sharma, who reportedly held offshore companies.

"We reject such false and foolish claims. It's ironical that Congress is making such claims as it is mother of black money. It looted the country and facilitated flow of illicit money abroad. Our government swiftly ordered a multi-agency probe. It had also set up a SIT to look into black money and passed a law in Parliament to curb it," BJP National Secretary Shrikant Sharma said.
