"I have no information on the issue. I will talk to Virbhadraji and only then I will be able to comment," party spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters here when asked whether the Union Steel Minister should resign.

Earlier Singh alleged "the FIR is a cheap gimmick which shall collapse under its own weight. It is another desperate move to damage me and Congress party through false and baseless accusations and unscrupulous vilification" and it was an act of "political vendetta" against him by the BJP government in the state.

Singh and his wife have been booked in a two-year-old corruption case by Himachal Pradesh Vigilance Bureau.
