Barabanki case: Congress backs Big B

April 01, 2008 21:39 IST

Coming out in support of Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan [Images] in the Barabanki case, the Congress on Tuesday said if he wants to do some charity work, no one should object to it.

"As far as the Barabanki case is concerned, if Amitabh Bachchan wants to do some charity work, no one should object to that," AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh told reporters.

The Barabanki district authorities on Monday issued a notice to the superstar, accusing him of undervaluing the stamp duty on a plot of land he bought in the area.

Additional District Magistrate (Finance) of Barabanki Shirish Dubey had issued the notice, accusing Bachchan of violating relevant sections of the Indian Stamp Duty Act on the basis of a report filed to him by tehsildar of Barabanki Anil Kumar.
