New Delhi: The economy is in ICU, but the government is issuing look out notice for those defending civil liberties, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said.
Sibal’s comments has come after the arrest of former Union minister P Chidambaram.
The former Law Minister tweeted that the developments in the last few weeks have shown that both the economy and the cause of liberty need a “stimulus package”.
The Delhi High Court on August 21 dismissed Chidambaram’s plea for bail. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) had issued a look-out notice against him on Wednesday in the INX media case.
A special anti-corruption court on Thursday sent the Congress leader to CBI custody till August 26.
