Buta Singh threatens to 'give up life'

Buta Singh threatens to 'give up life'

 Describing himself a saviour of dalits, Singh claimed he has served the community throughout his life and threatened that he would “give up his life if he was asked to resign”.

“I do not think I need support of party (Congress) to defend my case,” he told reporters here.

The CBI had last week arrested Singh’s son in Mumbai on charges of demanding a bribe of Rs 1 crore from Nashik-based contractor Rama Rao Patil to close a case pending before the Commission against him.

When asked whether he would cooperate with CBI if the agency wants him to undergo a narco test, the NCSC chairman  said, “Should I get ready for narco test as you ask? This is absolutely wrong...Let the time come I will cooperate with the CBI.”

Terming CBI action in the bribery case against his son as “strange”, Buta Singh said, “I am unable to understand it. There is no sanction from state.”
