To lend their support to the former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram, Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh visited the leader in Tihar Jail today. Karti Chidambaram also accompanied the leaders.

P Chidambaram extended his heartful thanks to both the leaders for visiting him. It can be seen that the Congress party has decided to stay by P Chidambaram’s side. The leader also said that he will be brave in the investigation.

Previous week, senior Congress leaders, Ghulam Nabi Azad, and Ahmed Patel had also gone to meet P Chidambaram. The leader also took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s ‘Howdy Modi‘ event. P Chidambaram slammed the Modi for his comment “Bharat mai Sab accha hai.”

In court today, P Chidambaram lawyers have submitted a sharp reply saying that the case caused no loss to the public exchequer’s purse.

Previously, while hearing the INX media case, Special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar had extended the judicial custody of the Congress leader up to October 3. P Chidambaram was arrested on August 21 by the investigative agencies on his alleged involvement to the INX media case.

INX MEDIA CASE:

In 2017, top investigative agencies have filed an FIR in relation to alleged irregularities in fund clearance to INX media house. It was alleged that FIPB (Foreign Investment Promotion Board) cleared the fund of Rs. 305 crore in the scam. P Chidambaram’s son Karti Chidambaram has also been summoned in the case.
