Congress on Sunday dismissed BJP's fresh charges in the 'cash for vote' scam as "an old wine in old bottle" and sought to wash its hands off the matter by saying that "not even an allegation has been made" against the party.

"As far as the other non-Congress entities are concerned these are mere allegations which are required to be proved before the Parliamentary committee going into the issue," party Spokespersons Abhishek Singhvi told PTI.

He said if the BJP has failed in Parliament it should await the committee's proceedings and findings and should not "try to create drama in the media everyday".

Singhvi said the BJP's latest allegation was nothing but "old wine in old bottle. They are simply repeating same old allegations which they have made since the trust vote."

The BJP on Sunday submitted some "facts" to the parliamentary inquiry committee in the 'cash for votes' scam, claiming that it will "conclusively establish the veracity of their complaints".
