Law will take its own course: Congress on bribery case
New Delhi: Congress on Saturday remained ambivalent on the demands for resignation of Railway Minister Pawan Bansal in the wake of the bribery case involving his nephew, saying law will take its own course.
"Law will take its own course. CBI is an independent body which is investigating the matter. Whoever is responsible will be punished," party spokesperson Rashid Alvi said when asked about the opposition demand for Bansal`s resignation.
BJP has demanded the sacking of the railway minister and CBI prosecution against him with party leader Ravi Shankar Prasad saying that seeking pecuniary advantage by someone close to the Railway minister and abusing the authority of the minister is a "copybook case" of prosecution of Bansal.
The minister`s nephew V Singla was yesterday arrested by the CBI in connection with alleged bribery of Rs 90 lakh for fixing a top level position in the government.
Bansal, however, has distanced himself from his nephew, saying he had no business links with him and denied any wrongdoing.
