NEW DELHI: Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday thanked the Congress President Sonia Gandhi and the party leaders for showing solidarity with him, saying he was grateful to them.
Shortly after the Congress President and other top leaders marched to his residence to show their support to him, he said he was "more than pleased and grateful".
" Soniaji, the Congress party, senior leaders and all members of the working committee have expressed solidarity with me and we will fight this case to the best of our ability," the former Prime Minister added, who has been summoned as an accused in a coal scam case.
Congress leaders led by party President Sonia Gandhi took out a march to Manmohan's house and said the party would fight the case with all legal means at its command, adding "We are here to express solidarity. Manmohan will be vindicated. He is a person of integrity and his integrity can't be questioned."
