Singh, also party affairs in-charge for Maharashtra, said that it was MP chief minister who first initiated a probe into the scam.

Meanwhile, on ministers in the Maharashtra government charged with corruption, Singh said it is the individual who is facing allegations and not the Devendra Fadnavis-led BJP government.

"There were no charges against the Devendra Fadanvis government as such and only few issues have been raised by Congressmen due to frustration," Singh said, adding that levelling allegations is not new for the Congress.

None of the charges have been proved so far, he added.
