Mr. Badal was reacting to reports that the Punjab Chief Minister, Amarinder Singh, had gone to Delhi to "seek legal and political clearance of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi'' for the case. "Today's development should leave no one in any doubt regarding the intentions of the Congress Party to fabricate figures in the case and use it in the on going election campaign in some States. Even the filing of the challan is being left to the Congress High Command to coincide with the poll campaign," he added.
In a statement released here, Mr. Badal came down heavily on Capt. Amarinder Singh for rushing to Delhi and "compromising the dignity of the office of the Chief Minister through his pathetic actions aimed at earning some brownie points from his bosses".
"We have always known and maintained that the entire drama of the case against us was being scripted, directed and enacted from 10 Janpath and only those officials who were willing to function as puppets in the hands of the Congress president had been chosen to man the Vigilance Bureau," he charged.
