New Delhi: The Congress on Thursday came down heavily on the BJP government over the arrest of P Chidambaram, accusing it of using the CBI and the ED as “personal revenge-seeking departments”.

Senior Congress leader and former Finance Minister Chidambaram was arrested last night amid high drama by the CBI and he spent the night at an agency guest house.

“Over the last two days India witnessed the broad daylight murder of democracy as also the rule of law,” said Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.

He further said that while many accused in the INX Media case have not been arrested, a senior politician has been arrested without any legal basis.

“Government using CBI, ED as personal revenge-seeking departments for the party in power as also those ruling country”, Surjewala charged.

“A seasoned politician was arrested on the statement of a woman charged with murder of her own daughter”, says Surjewala referring to Indrani Mukherjea

He further alleged that “false charges” were being heaped on senior political rivals to “silence” everyone in country.
