New Delhi, Oct 15 (IANS) Activist turned politician Arvind Kejriwal was left with no issues to take up against Law Minister Salman Khurshid, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh said Monday.

He said Khurshid had already replied to the allegations of embezzling funds of a trust run by his wife Louise Khurshid.

"They said there were no camps, it was proven wrong. They said handicapped did not get the articles, that was proven wrong... They said the signatures were fake... Khurshid himself has asked for it to be probed, what is the issue left with them now," Digvijay Singh told reporters.

He also questioned media reports of the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) saying that Rs.71 lakh had been embezzled by the NGO run by Louise Khurshid.

"It is surprising how the CAG report, before being tabled in the parliament, is leaked to media. Specially if the report is against Congress, it reaches media before parliament. It should be probed who is leaking the reports," he said.

"Kejrwial should be handed over all probes. It's like saying there is no account or document, but what Kejriwal is saying, is true," he added sarcastically.

The Congress leader also defended Khurshid's angry reactions at his press conference Sunday and said: "When an innocent person is attacked without proof, he will be angry, that is natural."
