Following former undersecretary for internal security at the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) RVS Mani revelation about the P Chidamabaram’s role in changing affidavits on the Ishrat Jahan case, the issue is likely to cause an uproar in both houses.

It is not that these things have been revealed by Mani now. These were informed during the UPA Government’s rule. Why the then home minister kept mum on the affidavit issue. When we filed two affidavit he received two letters threatening his life,” Singh said
