Virbhadra Singh abuses mediapersons, threatens to break their cameras, Congress apologizes

HPCC President Virbhadra Singh lost his cool and abused the media persons on Wednesday when he was questioned on the corruption allegations against him. He threatened to break the cameras of media persons.

Singh lost his cool when media persons asked his clarification over the alleged corruption allegations leveled by BJP leaders particularly Arun Jaitley. Earlier Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley had alleged that Singh had altered his income tax account books from 2008 onwards to show a forged, back-dated contract and a highly inflated income of around Rs 6.5 crore.

However, the Congress apologised to mediapersons. In a statement party spokesperson Sandeep Dikshit apologized on the behalf of party. Terming as “unfortunate” Singh’s remarks, the party said such things can sometime happen in the midst of an election campaign.
