Manmohan Singh New Delhi, Apr. 11 (ANI): The Congress party’s Chandni Chowk MP Kapil Sibal has accused his BJP rival Vijender Gupta of violating the Model Code of Conduct.

Sibal released a CD to the press on Saturday to prove his case.

The CD displays Gupta’s wife telling people that her husband’s signature had been instrumental in people getting more pension.

The wife of the MCD standing committee’s chairman also displayed his poster while demanding bribery, Sibal said.

The whole episode, he said, amounts to a violation of the poll code.

Refuting BJP’ leader L K Advani’s recent remarks on the Prime Minister, Sibal said if Manmohan Singh was a weak Prime Minister, Advani was not even worthy of being a candidate.

Sibal also took a potshot on Advani’s book, by saying that Advani’s knowledge of history is doubtful. (ANI)
