Former finance minister P Chidambaram, who was on Wednesday, 30 October, sent to judicial custody till 13 November, took a jibe at the BJP-led government over the EU parliamentarians' visit to Jammu and Kashmir, saying they may be invited to the Parliament and speak in favour of the government next.

"Who knows, it may happen," Chidambaram said, as he came out of the crowded courtroom.

Twenty-three members of the European Parliament visited Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday to assess the situation in the Valley after the abrogation of Article 370.

This is the third time that the veteran Congress leader has taken a dig at the government.

Earlier, he had mocked the government on the issue of GDP and said, "Five percent. Do you know what is five percent?"

On 24 October, Chidambaram had said, "Quiet patriotism will defeat muscular nationalism."
