Former Defence Minister and senior Congress leader today alleged that it was a political conspiracy to malign the party leadership in the AgustaWestland chopper deal for which Subramanian Swamy has been brought to Rajya Sabha to fulfill the Prime Minister’s “muck raking agenda”.
“These are baseless allegations. It is a political conspiracy to malign Congress leadership and cover-up NDA’s criminal negligence,” Antony said. Assuring cooperation of the party in the probe, Antony alleged that the NDA govt “went to sleep” in the last two years “doing nothing”.
When asked about the names of Sonia Gandhi and some other Congress leaders being mentioned in the court verdict, Antony claimed, “No witnesses mentioned these names in hearing in the Italian Court”.
