Jaitley takes a dig at Chidambaram

The war of words between P Chidambaram and Arun Jaitley refuses to end with the BJP leader on Friday taking a dig at the finance minister saying he appears to be planning a life after retirement and practicing writing columns which will make ‘excellent’ reading.

‘Finally my friend P Chidambaram, the union finance minister appears to be planning life after the North Block. He is an extremely competent lawyer. Parliament’s loss will be SC’s gain,’ Jaitley said.

‘From the kind of statements he is making and the academic questions he is posing to his opponents, I suspect that he is practising to get back to column writing. I am sure his columns will make an excellent reading,’ the senior BJP leader said. He was responding to posers by Chidambaram over the knowledge of economics possessed by Modi, an issue which has been a subject of spat between the two senior lawyers.
