Congress on Tuesday dismissed as "uncontrolled" Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa's statement seeking the resignation of home minister P Chidambaram for allegedly getting himself elected to Parliament through "fraudulent" means.
"How can any party give its reaction on such an uncontrolled statement? The person concerned will respond", AICC general secretary Janardan Dwivedi told reporters.
The reaction of Dwivedi, who is also head of the Congress Media department, came after Jayalalithaa said Chidambaram's continuance in the Union council of ministers was untenable.
Later, Chidambaram dubbed as "gross contempt of court" Jayalalithaa's charge. "She knows that her candidate Rajakannappan has filed an election petition in the Madras high court and that is pending since September 2009. Her statement, is therefore in gross contempt of court."
