New Delhi: Opposition parties Saturday criticised Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti for accusing the media of being bought off by BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, a statement he retracted later.

While the Bharatiya Janata Party demanded the minister's resignation, the Congress advised him against making allegations without proof.

The law minister has been violating all laws and has now insulted the media as well, Delhi BJP leader Harsh Vardhan, who was also the party's chief ministerial candidate, said.

"This is a sign of intellectual bankruptcy. He should resign immediately," he said.

Congress leader Digvijaya Singh demanded that Bharti reveal the names of people who were receiving money from Modi.
