Leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitely on Sunday charged the Congress with using “disgruntled” police officers and civil servants along with tweets and taunts by “second row leaders” to target Narendra Modi as it was “cornered” in the leadership battle.

In a Facebook post, he said, “They (Congress) are back to their old game of detecting a disgruntled police officer or a civil servant and getting him to make absurd charges.” Jaitley’s comment came a day after suspended IAS officer Pradeep Sharma said he had moved the Supreme Court to order a CBI probe against Modi in the snooping controversy.

“This didn’t work when Sanjeev Bhatt (the suspended IPS officer) did it. It won’t work with Congress party’s newly discovered suspended civil servant (Pradeep Sharma) doing it,” Jaitley said. Jaitley prefaced his remarks observing that Congress is on the backfoot as far as the leadership battle is concerned as “Rahul Gandhi is no match” for Modi.
