Taking a dig at Law Minister Hans Raj Bhardwaj for making a statement on the “sting” conducted by Sanjay Dutt, Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Thursday questioned the comments made by the Congress leader even when he was not named.
“Chor ke dari mein tinka (guilty mind is always suspicious). Neither Sanjay nor I said anything against Hans Raj Bhardwaj. We did not take his name. If I have to say something on the CD, I will inform Soniaji, as in a way I am her loyal soldier. I will hand over the CD to her if required,” SP general secretary Amar Singh told reporters.
Singh’s comments came after Bhardwaj denied threatening Dutt. “I don’t think I threatened anybody, much less Sanjay Dutt.” Bhardwaj clarified his position after his name reportedly cropped up as the minister on whom Dutt is suspected to have conducted the sting.
Singh said since Bhardwaj has himself admitted to meeting Dutt, legal experts Kapil Sibal (Union minister and Congress spokesperson) and BJP leader Arun Jaitley should find out whether “he (Bhardwaj) should continue as a minister...I will not get into this controversy”.
