Jaitley slams PC, Sibal for attack on Modi

BJP leader Arun Jaitley slammed Union ministers P Chidambaram and Kapil Sibal for attacking Narendra Modi, saying that "the Congress may choose to decry its opponents as salesmen and showmen" but "it has nothing to sell and certainly nothing to show to the electorate of this country."

In his blog, Jaitley said Chidambaram chose to speak about the BJP and Modi at Davos when rating agency Moody’s India said "the industry is today waiting for a political change led by Modi for a major turn-around to take place."

On the finance minister’s admission that his party goes into the polls as an underdog, Jaitley said, "Congress may end up getting its lowest figure in the history of Indian elections."

Replying to Sibal’s poser to Modi on why he was quiet on BS Yeddyurappa’s return to the BJP, Jaitley said the Congress embraced a convicted Lalu Prasad Yadav and shielded its former chief minister Ashok Chavan from prosecution by refusing to grant sanction.

Jaitley reminded Sibal of business transactions of sons and sons-in- law of his leaders.
