[New Delhi]”AAP” Demands Action Against Agusta Deal’s Beneficiaries.
Kejriwal’s Own Much Hyped Odd, Even Scheme Is Crashed
Delhi Ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today said both the Congress and BJP have “blackened” their hands in the Agusta Westland chopper deal and demanded action against those involved.
The party also asked the government to come clean on allegations that former Air Chief S P Tyagi had links with Vivekananda Foundation, a Delhi based think tank, once headed by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval. It also wondered whether this was the reason behind the probe agencies going “slow” in the investigation.
“This deal started during Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s tenure.
It was completed by the Manmohan Singh government and (it) cancelled the deal
.AAP leader Sanjay Singh said. It appears that since Congress and the BJP have both blackened their hands, this is why the Modi government is not taking any action against Sonia Gandhi,”
“If the intentions of Modi government is to combat corruption, then it should arrest those involved in it, right from Sonia Gandhi, Ahmed Patel to S P Tyagi and many other officers and politicians…whose name in involved in the Agusta Westland chopper deal. He said Even some journalists are believed to have been involved,” .
The party also posed six questions to the government over the investigations in the deal.
AAP leader Ashutosh said.
“It is evident that S P Tyagi has taken bribe. What is the connection of S P Tyagi with Vivekananda Foundation. NSA Ajit Doval and Prime Minister’s Principal Secretary Nripendra Misra, both believed to be very powerful bureaucrats linked to Vivekananda Foundation.
Strongly refuting the allegations, the government termed attempts to link Doval and Misra to one of the accused as “totally baseless assertion and indicative of malicious intent”.
