No differences between govt, Cong: Chidambaram
New Delhi: Hitting out at Arun Jaitley, Home Minister P Chidambaram on Wednesday rejected his contention that there were differences between government and Congress and said his party does not indulge in "dual act" like BJP which has been exposed.
"Well I have heard our friend Arun Jaitley say that," Chidambaram said when referred to the remarks made by the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha that the UPA government and Congress were divided on various issues.
"Let me assure that we don`t have an Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj dual act in our party or government. Nor do we have the kind of dualism that was exposed between Mr Jaswant Singh and Mr L K Advani post-Kandahar," he told Doordarshan in an interview.
He said Congress and the government have a division of responsibilities "but we speak in one voice and act together".
Jaitley had said yesterday that there were two streams of opinion between Congress and the government.
"Shri Arun Jaitley should have checked either with the Finance Minister (Pranab Mukherjee) or with me before he made the comment," Chidambaram said.
