Scam-accused Chidambaram speaks like a freedom fighter
Social media is abuzz with criticism of P Chidambaram, who was arrested on Wednesday night in connection with the INX Media case. Accused of a scam by the CBI, the former Union Minister had been "missing" since Tuesday night.
Appearing at the AICC HQ last night, PC read out a written address and he sounded as if he has been hounded for fighting for freedom! "There is a reason why it was called a freedom struggle by India before 1947. It's because people struggled for freedom. You have to struggle to secure the freedom. The most precious Article of the Indian Constitution is Article 21. If I were to choose between life and liberty, I will choose the latter," PC said.
He also slammed the media for saying that he had gone into hiding, adding that he had been working with his lawyers.
This Friday, the Supreme Court will hear PC's bail plea. He is likely to be given bail.
