Chopper scam probe should be under Parliamentary Committee: Venkaiah
Hyderabad: Rejecting a CBI probe into the Rs 3600-crore VVIP chopper deal, senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader M Venkaiah Naidu said that the investigation should be held either under the supervision of the Supreme Court or the Parliamentary Committee, and added that the Congress Party is notoriously known for misusing the CBI.
"BJP demands setting up of a SIT to investigate into serious charges about payments made in AugustaWestland VVIP chopper purchase. The probe should be either under the supervision of the Supreme Court or the Parliamentary Committee, because the Congress party is notoriously known for misusing CBI," Naidu told media here.
"That's why the BJP is not expectable to this suggestion of CBI inquiry. Because the CBI has no credibility and the government intention is also doubtful, because this issue was raised in 2011 in the Parliament and also a letter was written to the Defence Minister, in spite of that the government did not act so far," he added.
He further said that the opposition party would corner the governmnet on this issue in Parliament.
JD(U) Chief Sharad Yadav stated that his party is not bothered by the reports of a possible alliance between the Congress, RJD and LJP for Bihar elections. Yadav added that there is always competition whenever there is an election.
