Even after the criticism from BJP and team Anna, over the court order to file corruption charges against Virbhadra Singh on the 25 years old graft case, Congress has asked him to not resign yet and wait for the verdict of the High Court in the CD row.
Union Minister has himself offered to resign after the verdict saying he did not want to embarrass Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, saying, “I take moral responsibility for this, if needed I will resign.”
The BJP had also hit out at the Union Minister following the court orders. Senior BJP leader Kalraj Mishra demanded that Singh must be dismissed over the incident. He has said that irbhadra Singh should either resign from his post or the UPA must dismiss him.
The Team Anna also did not refrain from attacking the former chief minister. Key member Arvind Kejriwal said, “If such ministers continue to remain in the Cabinet, corruption in our country will never reduce. We demand Virbhadra Singh’s resignation. We also think that Virbhadra Singh should not be the CM candidate of the Congress in Himachal Pradesh.”
