Facing charges of misusing official position for his son to pass Class 10 examination, senior Congress leader and public enterprise minister Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed on Saturday said he will reveal the secrets behind the recent 'examgate' controversy at an appropriate time.

"I am innocent and was made a victim of a conspiracy It isn't an appropriate time. Everything will come out at an appropriate time," said Sayeed at a public gathering addressing in south Kashmir's Kokernag area, which is also hometown of the minister.

The minister said an internal bickering within the state Board of School Education (BOSE) could be one of the reasons for the recent controversy.

Claiming of being a victim of conspiracies in the past too, Sayeed said, "In 2008 a conspiracy was hatched to defame me. I had offered to resign then also as Pradesh Congress Committee president. The high command, however, didn't accept my resignation like this time," he said.

The minister also claimed the recent debacle of the Congress party in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab assembly elections "will not have any impact on J&K Congress."
