NEW DELHLI: Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today termed as "political vendetta" the disproportionate assets case against him and his wife.     

Moments after the 82-year-old politician was granted bail by a special court, Singh told mediapersons that it was going to be a long battle.     

"It's a political vendetta. It's a long battle and I will fight and win the case," the Chief Minister said.     The Congress leader and his wife Pratibha Singh were granted bail by a special court here in connection with a nearly Rs 10 crore disproportionate assets case on a personal bond of Rs one lakh each and one surety of the like amount.     

The court, however, asked them not to leave the country without its prior permission.
