New Delhi: Albeit a combative Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former prime minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday dismissed the bribery charges in the VVIP chopper scam, the grand old party has come under fire from Twitteratis.

Sonia Gandhi, whose name figures in a judgment by an Italian court, said she was "not afraid" and dubbed the allegations as false. Manmohan Singh and former defence minister AK Antony echoed the sentiment.
