However, the Congress and government have come out in support of Chidambaram. Sonia has asked leaders to defend Chidambaram. Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who is in the US backed Chidambaram, saying: “As far as Chidambaram is concerned, as Finance Minister, he had enjoyed my full confidence and as Home Minister he continues to enjoy and inspire my full confidence.”
