New Delhi: Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh got breather from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the Congress party. In a press conference Prime Minister Manmohan Singh did not comment on the charges of corruption levelled against him saying he did not get the time to consider the issue.

The Prime Minister, while replying to the query of media person, said

I am sorry. I am not able to comment on what you are referring to, in Himachal Pradesh. I have seen some newspaper reports. I have also received a letter on December 29th, from Shri Arun Jaitley. But I have not had the time to apply my mind to it – what is the truth in these allegations

The AICC general secretary and in-charge of Himachal party affairs Ambika Soni also supported Virbhadra Singh and stated that she’s satisfied with the reply from him over graft allegations.
