Congress on Friday sought to make light of Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh's accusations against its President Sonia Gandhi slamming it as a "Bollywood drama" which reflected his "nervousness".
"It (Singh's charges) reflects the party's nervousness and anxiety. Samajwadi Party suspects the Congress for every movement and every sound. Even if it rains in Lucknow, they will blame the Congress in Delhi for it.
"Amar Singh's charges are like a Bollywood drama before the camera. An entertainment tax should be imposed on it," Congress spokesman Abhishek Singhvi said.
He said Congress had nothing to do with the Income tax notices served on superstar Amitabh Bachchan who is close to Amar Singh and SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav.
On the allegations levelled by Singh against Rahul Gandhi, he said, "they are such baseless allegations that we need not even comment on it."
Singh earlier in the day accused the Congress chief of targeting Mulayam Singh Yadav and threatened to move court seeking details of assets owned by Gandhi and her son Rahul.
