Marking a new low in Indian political vocabulary, Congress leader and Union Minister for Steel Beni Prasad Verma has hit out at Arvind Kejriwal over his attack on Khurshid saying "he should not bark day and night".
After his bizarre defence of Khurshid, Beni Prasad Verma now says that even one rupee constitutes corruption. Earlier, the Congress leader had said that Rs 71 lakh was “too small” to entice Khurshid into embezzling the funds, "Rs 71 lakh is a small amount for a Central Minister. A person like Salman Khurshid will not do any scam for Rs 71 lakh…had it been Rs 71 crore, I would have taken it seriously." His strange defence has triggered widespread ridicule and condemnation from all quarters.
