AgustaWestland scam: Criminal case will be made clear today, says Swamy
New Delhi, May 4: Criminal case behind the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal would be made clear during the discussion in the Rajya Sabha, senior BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday said.
"The case will be made out. So far, facts have been floating. The fact is the whole thing fits into a criminal case. What is that criminal case...that will be made clear today," Swamy told ANI.
"There is short duration discussion today after lunch. Manohar Parrikar will make the statement today. He is a studious person and he won't make any statement unless there is something important to say. He is bound to digest all these Italian High Court's judgments and CAG reports and so on in a way which ordinary people can understand," the BJP leader added.
Defence Minister Manohor Parrikar will make a statement in the Rajya Sabha at 2 p.m. on Wednesday during a debate on AgustaWestland issue. Upper House is likely to witness hot exchange of words between the BJP and Congress.
The Congress went into a huddle on Tuesday to chalk out a strategy ahead of the defence minister's statement.
Senior Congress leaders went to Sonia Gandhi's residence in the evening to discuss how to counter the BJP in parliament on the issue.
