New Delhi: Congress on Monday steered clear
of the demands for former Chief Justice of India K G
Balakrishnan resigning as NHRC`s chairperson in the wake of
income tax department finding black money trail to his
relatives.
"I do not think I have anything to say. The matter is
between that statutory committee and the government. Some
people have given their views. Congress has no need to comment
on it," party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi told reporters.
Former Chief Justice J S Verma has asked Balakrishnan
to quit as NHRC chief in the wake of the sensational
disclosure by the income tax department. Verma has said that
it was for Balakrishnan to come clean on the allegations that
his relatives suddenly became rich during his term at the helm
in the apex court.
