Congress on Thursday night hailed the Justice Pathak Committee report which indicted former External Affairs Minister K Natwar Singh and his MLA son Jagat Singh in the UN oil-for-food scam and exonerated the party, indicating that action would follow after studying the findings.
"The report is there for anyone to see. It is a very high-powered commission chaired by a former Chief Justice of India which went into the facts and records and said what it has to say," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi said.
As far as individuals are concerned, he remarked "let us wait to study the report and then decide on the individual course of action."
The copy of the 110-page report, including 22 pages of annexures, was handed over to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh by Justice RS Pathak.
