Punjab CM Amarinder Singh said there was no such move yet and the decision in respect of the CBI consent to Congress-ruled states would be taken by party President Rahul Gandhi.

Singh had met Gandhi in the capital the day before but the issue of consent to the CBI wasn’t discussed.

The decision, Congress sources said, had political implications in the election season and would be taken by the party high command keeping all factors, including elections in MP, Rajasthan, Telangana, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram in mind.
