At today's briefing, the Congress spokesman, Anand Sharma, said no FIR had been filed against the politicians named in the Tehelka expose, and sustained efforts were being made to protect them. "
By not proceeding against the politicians while the Army has conducted its own enquiry, the Government is making a statement that there are two sets of rules in the country: One for senior politicians and another for Army officers and civil servants.''
The Congress is monitoring the Government's reaction to the World Bank using the term `Azad Kashmir' "which has no legal standing'' for Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir (PoK) while sanctioning a package for the development of Pakistan.
"To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time the World Bank has referred to PoK as `Azad Kashmir'.
"The nation is interested to see the reaction of the Government so that the World Bank is informed about our strong protest and views in this regard'', Mr. Sharma said.
