Share

The Congress on Saturday defended Karti Chidambaram, son of former finance minister P Chidambaram, and said the BJP is trying to divert people's attention from the Centre's failures on the "real" issues such as unemployment, economic downslide, farm distress, demonetisation "disaster" and a "repressive" tax regime.

The summoning comes days after Karti Chidambaram was instructed by the Supreme Court to appear before the CBI in relation to the INX Media Case, where he is accused of receiving irregular FIPB clearance for investment upto Rs 305 crore.

"But he categorically rejected the innuendoes and insinuations of knowledge or connection to Aircel-Maxis transaction", he added. His father Chidambaram was the finance minister at that time.

Chidambaram further took to twitter in support for his son.

(This amounts to approx Rs 5,127 crore, according to existing conversion rates). In 2011, former Aircel head C Sivasankaran complained to the CBI that he was being forced by the then telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran to sell Aircel to the Malaysia-based Maxis Communications group owned by T Ananda Krishnan. "Tragically, the CBI, ED and other investigating agencies have become captive puppets in the government's mal-intent to oppress, hound and intimidate its opponents", he said in a statement.

P Chidambaram was examined in 2014 by the agency in connection with the case.
