New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Subramanian Swamy on Thursday said that Congress' top leadership will soon go to jail in connection with the alleged VVIP chopper scam.
Speaking exclusively to Zee Media, the newly-appointed Rajya Sabha MP said there's no need of Congress leader Ahmed Patel to say that he would leave politics if found guilty in the Rs 3,600 crore Agusta Westland VVIP chopper deal, as when he will be held guilty, he would land up in prison and it would ultimately lead to hia sanyas from politics.
Expressing his views on opposition's demand of Supreme Court-monitored probe in the alleged scam, the BJP leader said that why didn't the previous Congress-led UPA government initiated such investigation.
Commenting on his yesterday's Rajya Sabha speech, Swamy said it was a part of strategy to mention Congress president Sonia Gandhi name in last so that the Opposition doesn't create ruckus in the House.
Putting his weight behind Kirit Somaiya, Swamy said the BJP leader has never levelled accusations without facts. His reaction comes after the BJP leader on Tuesday accused Kanishka Singh, an aide to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, of being involved in the AgustaWestland and 2010 Commonwealth Games (CWG) scams.
BJP MP Somaiya accused Kanishka Singh of having shares in Emaar MGF Land Ltd, a real estate company that also has Guido Ralph Haschke, one of the accused in the AgustaWestland case, as its director.
