Congress on Monday said that the probe into the money laundering case registered against Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh by the Uttar Pradesh police should be held as per proceedings of law.
"Congress has one principle...The proceedings of law should go on in a natural way...We are not concerned with an individual case," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters in New Delhi.
The statement comes a few days after AICC General Secretary in-charge of UP Digvijay Singh said that it appeared that the Mayawati government was targeting the SP leader.
Underlining the need for the case to proceed without any discrimination, Singhvi said, "this case is between the UP government and different agencies but law of the country should prevail".
After the case was lodged, the Congress leader had said, "I am not aware of the details of the case but what I have gathered is that it has been filed on a private complaint... At the first look, it does look like a case of political vendetta."
Singh said the administration in UP had been very quick in lodging the FIR against Amar Singh and others on receiving the complaint.
