Virbhadra Singh
New Delhi, Oct 24: Is Indian media under threat from politicians? More and more politicians are venting their anger on mediapersons. The latest to join the group is Himachal Pradesh Congress chief, Virbhadra Singh.

The senior Congress leader on Wednesday, Oct 24 threatened to break the cameras of mediapersons when questioned on the allegations of corruption against him.

"I will break your cameras. Don't you have any work? The allegations are wrong and baseless," Singh said.

Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley on Tuesday alleged that Singh had altered his income tax account books from 2008 onwards to show a forged, back-dated contract and a highly inflated income of around Rs 6.5 Crore.

Singh had recently come under the scanner following allegations that he had received payments from a steel company which had come to light after raids were conducted on the firm in 2010.

"This is a case of bribery, conversion of bribe money through money-laundering into real income, forgery by back-dating an agreement," Jaitley said, maintaining that this was not just a case of tax evasion. Attacking Sonia Gandhi who criticised BJP on the issue of corruption, Jaitley said, "Had she known this, she would not have shared the stage with Singh. And if she knew and yet shared the stage, she should not have given a sermon on corruption." Jaitley demanded that the matter should be probed by a Special Investigation Team comprising three honest police officers.
