BJP leader Arun Jaitley today dared Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra to file a defamation case against him for alleging that he had taken bribe from a private power company and said he would cross examine him in court on each of the charges.   

"Virbhadra Singh has said that he would consider filing a defamation action against me. He is certainly entitled to do so. In that event I would be pleading truth as defence and cross examining him on each of these issues," Jaitley, a renowned lawyer, wrote on his Facebook.

Claiming that he has "ample evidence" against Virbhadra Singh, the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha asked Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to examine this and make a public declaration as to why they feel he is "still innocent".   

Singh has denied the charges and said BJP was indulging in a "malicious campaign".      The BJP leader has written a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in which he had levelled the charges. He also attached 20 documents claiming these to be as "evidence". A copy of the documents has also been sent to the CBI director.     

 "The (Congress) party has challenged me to produce the evidence.

The entire evidence is documentary and submitted both to the Prime Minister and the Director CBI. The evidence is also available on my website," he said.
