Manmohan  to move SC  next week

With full backing from Congress President Sonia Gandhi, former prime minister Manmohan Singh is expected to move the Supreme Court next week seeking the quashing of the summons issued by a special CBI court asking him to appear in connection with coal scam case.

The Congress has roped in top lawyers Kapil Sibal, who served as Law Minister in the UPA-II regime, and KTS Tulsi to appear on behalf of Singh in the apex court.

A special court had summoned Singh along with industrialist Kumar Mangalam Birla, ex-coal secretary P C Parakh and three others as accused in a case pertaining to allocation of Talabira-II coal block in Odisha in 2005 and asked them to appear before it on April 8.
