Manmohan Singh 'most honest' person in public life: Congress

New Delhi, Mar. 11 (ANI): Senior Congress leader P.C. Chacko on Wednesday said former prime minister Manmohan Singh is the most honest person in public life.


"The way the whole thing was made out by opposition especially by BJP is completely unfair. Even the BJP would not be able to say that he is corrupt," he told ANI here today.
"We respect the verdict of the court. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has reported in the court that there is no evidence against Manmohan Singh," he said.
Chacko further said the summons issued to the former prime minister in connection with the coal blocks allocation scam is a legal issue, and added that the latter would face it in the court.
"This is a legal issue; it will be faced in court by Manmohan Singh and Congress. We definitely have the responsibility as he was our leader. Prime Minister Narendra Modi rightly said that former PM will definitely get a chance to place his views before the court. I do believe in what Manmohan Singh said earlier that the truth will prevail," he added.
Earlier in the day, a special CBI court summoned former prime minister Manmohan Singh, former coal secretary P C Parakh, Aditya Birla Group chairman K M Birla and three others in connection with the coal blocks allocation scam.
The court has summoned them on April 8 for offences of criminal conspiracy, breach of trust and under provisions of prevention of corruption act. (ANI)
