New Delhi: Albeit a combative Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former prime minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday dismissed the bribery charges in the VVIP chopper scam, the grand old party has come under fire from Twitteratis.
Sonia Gandhi, whose name figures in a judgment by an Italian court, said she was "not afraid" and dubbed the allegations as false. Manmohan Singh and former defence minister AK Antony echoed the sentiment.
However, social media user took to Twitter today to lash out at the party, which they say is planning riots to deflect the attention from corruption charges.
Notably, a Milan court has sent Finmeccanica's former CEO Giuseppe Orsi and AgustaWestland ex-head Bruno Spagnolini to jail for false accounting and corruption in the sale of 12 VVIP choppers to India.
