Party hits back at Team Anna members for levelling graft charges against Manmohan Singh; terms the language used by Prashant Bhushan deplorable

With Team Anna accusing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of corruption, the Congress party yesterday hit back and said his image is beyond reproach.

“The prime minister is the leader of the country. His image is beyond doubt... Anybody levelling charges of corruption against him and claiming proof thereof should go to the police station instead of approaching the media,” said Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi.

Referring to the allegations against Manmohan Singh and the language used by Team Anna member Prashant Bhushan, Alvi said it was unfortunate and deplorable.

Team Anna has levelled charges against 14 cabinet ministers and the prime minister and wants an independent probe into its allegations.
