New Delhi, Dec 6: The truth is Congress has fought against corruption and the BJP fights for the corrupt, said party leader Jaiveer Shergill on Thursday.
Addressing a press conference, Shergil dubbed the Central Bureau of Investigation as Comfort Bureau of Investigation of BJP.
“Will the CBI investigate the BJP-Agusta nexus of qui pro quo of accomodating and including them in Make in India programme, welcome them to bid for navy helicopters by overruling the earlier govt’s judgement?”.
“The CBI has not investigated the angle of BJP aggressively promoting Agusta in Finmeccanica, despite them being into the radar of suspicion”.
The Congress leader also targeted Union Minister Arun Jaitley over his alleged links with fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi.
“For the past 4 years, BJP is creating a racket of Agusta case, despite not finding any evidence against Congress party. BJP is linking a lawyer, who is expelled from Congress, to Agusta, while FM Jaitley’s daughter and son-in-law have taken money from Nirav Modi”.
Shergil also hit out at Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad saying “he was a lawyer of Sahara Subhroto Roy, who was involved in chit fund scam. FM Jaitley defended Ketan Parekh, involved in stock manipulation scam and also defended Union Carbide in Bhopal Gas tragedy”.
Continuing his attack on the Narendra Modi government, he stated “the Centre is supporting Agusta in cases which were fought in Italy. They did not appeal to the higher court in Italy, when lost twice”.
Shergill told media.
