The Congress steered clear of its MP Priya Dutt’s disapproval of the SP’s decision to field brother Sanjay Dutt from the Lucknow LS seat saying it was a family affair.

“We have nothing to say on this,” party spokesman Manish Tewari said. “Every adult in this world is entitled to make an independent choice.” Tewari rubbished charges of pressure from the Law Ministry for Dutt not to contest as he was convicted under the Arms Act in 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.
