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.
I have asked my family to tweet on my behalf the following:
I am honoured that Smt. Sonia Gandhi and Dr. Manmohan Singh called on me today.
As long as the @INCIndia party is strong and brave, I will also be strong and brave.

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.
