Party spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi said that the move smells of "vendetta politics" of the Bharatiya Janata Party against its opponents.

"Classic diversionary tactic of the Modi government to hide their own corrupt governance model that is being exposed on a daily basis-- be it Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi, Dwarka Das Seth Jewellers," Chaturvedi said. 

"The BJP government continues its vendetta and vindictive politics to target opponents. However, it will not stop the Congress from bringing the truth out before the people," Chaturvedi said.

Karti Chidambaram, son of former the Finance Minister, was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation from Chennai airport in connection with alleged irregularities involved in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance of the INX Media.
