Aiming at Kapil Sibal
After the Supreme Court stayed the order of the High Court in the CM Trivandra case, the BJP has put not only the Congress but also the lawyer Kapil Sibal in the dock. Chief spokesperson of Uttarakhand BJP Munna Singh Chauhan welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court. He said that the manner in which the Congress showed rashness proves that the complainant Umesh Sharma and the Congress carried out this criminal conspiracy to tarnish the CM’s image under a conspiracy.
Questioning Kapil Sibal, he said that in the Harish Rawat sting case, Kapil Sibal, on whom Umesh Sharma made allegations of corruption, Kapil Sibal is now telling Umesh Sharma to be clean by becoming Umesh Sharma’s lawyer in the latest case. BJP says that in similar case, Kapil Sibal cannot be a lawyer for the opposition.
