It's feverish imagination, says Chidambaram
Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Saturday dismissed as “feverish and hyperactive imagination,” allegations of civil war between him and Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, and termed the reported bugging in his office as a “non-event.”
He said the Bharatiya Janata Party's allegations in this regard were only an attempt “to see a ghost where none exists.”
“The Finance Minister and I are separated by 10 years in age. He is elder, wiser, and more senior. He chairs a number of Group[s] of Ministers and I am a member of practically everyone of them. We speak to each other everyday and we consult each other on a continuous basis. It is only a feverish and hyperactive imagination that can look for ghosts where none exists,” he told NDTV.
Mr. Chidambaram was replying to the BJP's charge that there was a civil war between the Finance Minister and the Home Minister.
