No CBI influence exerted on SP chief, says Congress
New Delhi: The Congress Monday rejected the Samajwadi Party`s charge that the CBI was used to influence its decision in the foreign direct investment (FDI) in retail and jobs quota bill.
"There is no question of any influence. There is no proof of it," Congress spokesperson PC Chacko told reporters.
The Samajwadi Party Sunday alleged that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) was being used to trap its chief, Mulayam Singh Yadav.
The SP`s remark came ahead of the crucial vote on a bill Monday evening that promises reservation to the Scheduled Castes (SCs) and the Scheduled Tribes (STs) in job promotions.
Both the SP and the BSP had helped the ruling UPA win the parliament vote on FDI in retail.
"The SP and the BSP took their positions on FDI on their own. I don`t think a leader of Mulayam Singh Yadav`s stature would be afraid of CBI," said Chacko.
