New Delhi: The grand old party on Friday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of unnecessarily defaming its leaders in the wake of AgustaWestland scam adding that the saffron outfits’ wish of a Congress free India will remain a dream.
Congress leader Sachin Pilot told ANI that, “Our party president Sonia Gandhi has herself vouched for an investigation in AugustaWestland scam. We call for unbiased investigation, a time bound probe. But the way BJP is making relentless efforts to maligning image of our leaders and is wishing of a Congress free India is a mere dream.”
The Congress leaders under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi carried out the ‘save the democracy protest’ against the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) move of trying to topple the Uttarakhand government.
Sonia Gandhi along with many other Congress leaders have been accused by the BJP of a prime position in the scandal, which saw bribes being paid in India by Anglo-Italian firm Agusta for a contract to sell 12 helicopters for Rs. 3,600 crores.(ANI)
