Congress refutes Allegations by Jayanthi Natarajan

New Delhi, Jan 30: Barely hours after senior congress leader resigned from the party, the pro-Rahul Gandhi leaders of the party came forward to defend him and refuted the allegations levelled by her against party leadership.

Defending Rahul, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi alleged Natarajan of acting under the pressure of BJP. He said that all the charges against Rahul were untrue and she was acting at the behest of her new political masters indicating BJP.

He termed Natarajan's statements about Rahul Gandhi were motivated. He alleged why she was blaming Rahul for her decisions about certain projects. All knew Congress policy about the tribals and environment protection, and if she acted as per the policy of the party, there is no justification to allege the party leadership for this, he said to media.

The party had given her a chance to be member of the parliament for four times without contesting the polls, such allegations against party leadership from her are shocking, he said. 

He alleged that the former Congress leader perhaps likes the pro-rich and pro-corporate policy of BJP, not the pro-poor policy of Congress.
