Chidambaram joins Congress’s Out on Bail Club: Sambit Patra’s jibe after SC grants him bail

BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra has said after Supreme Court granted bail to former Union minister and veteran Congress leader P Chidambaram, he too has joined the “Out On Bail Club” of the Congress party.

In a tweet, Sambit Patra took a jibe at P Chidambaram and said, “So finally Chidambaram too joins the long list of “OOBC (Out On Bail Club)” in the Congress.. He joins the coveted Club, some members of which are: 1)Sonia Gandhi, 2)Rahul Gandhi, 3)Robert Vadra, 4)Motilal Vohra, 5)Bhupinder Hooda, 6)Sashi Tharoor, Etc Etc (sic)”.

In yet another tweet, Sambit Patra said Congress’s celebration of Chidambaram’s bail in the INX Media case is a “Classic case of Congress ‘Celebrating Corruption’!!”.

Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, hailed the Supreme Court verdict of granting bail to P Chidambaram and said the former minister stands vindicated.

P Chidambaram’s 106-day incarceration was vengeful and vindictive, Rahul Gandhi said on Wednesday.

A three-judge bench, headed by Justice R Banumathi, granted bail to Chidambaram. The 74-year-old Congress leader has been in custody since August 21, when he was arrested by the CBI in the INX-Media corruption case. The Enforcement Directorate had arrested him on October 16 in the money laundering case.

“Mr P Chidambaram’s 106 day incarceration was vengeful and vindictive. I’m glad that the SC has granted him bail. I’m confident that he will be able to prove his innocence in a fair trial,” Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday provided major relief to P Chidambaram after a span of 106 days behind the bars and granted him bail in the INX Media money laundering case. The court said the claims by the ED that he can tamper with evidence cannot be accepted on “face value” as he is neither in “political power” nor holds any post in the government.
