The alleged bugging of Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee's office turned into a political row today with the Congress alleging that the Opposition was making a mountain out of a molehill.

Ridiculing BJP's comparison of the incident with the US' Watergate scandal, party spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan said the Opposition was making it a political issue to divert attention from its internal problems.

Natarajan played the tune of 'all is well' in the government while answering a volley of questions on the issue, including the alleged rivalry between the Finance Minister and the Home Minister.

Steering clear of all the questions, she said the Finance Minister has already clarified that the IB has gone into the issue and has found nothing and allegations in this regard are bogus.

In an apparent attack on BJP, which had alleged a civil war in the government, she said the BJP was in a great danger of complete deterioration since the defeat in the Lok Sabha polls as also in the assembly elections. "Now there is a total internal rebellion and they are clutching at a straw to make allegations at the government," she said.
