New Delhi: It's a huge embarrassment for Congress and Gandhi family!
Senior Congress leader Margaret Alva has spilled the beans on Congress' first family's alleged connections with controversial arms dealer Christian Michel.
Christian Michel is an alleged middleman in the controversial Rs 3600 crore AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam
Gandhis had connections with Michel's father Wolfgang
In her book, 'Courage and Commitment – An Autobiography', Margaret Alva talks about Congress' connections with Michel's father Wolfgang Michel.
According to the Margaret Alva's autobiography, the case dates back to 1980s while Sanjay Gandhi was alive.
Sanjay Gandhi, CPN Singh and tank scam
It was known as the tank scam where Sanjay Gandhi and CPN Singh had allegedly connived to sell second hand Indian army tanks to SA.
Alva accuses CPN Singh of political vendetta
CPN Singh, who was a known key aide and confidante of Sanjay Gandhi, was removed from his position because of Alva's allegations then.
Moreover, Alva in her autobiography has alleged that she was being targeted by CPN Singh as she was about to blow the lid off his connections with Michel.
Congress in denial
However, Congress has dubbed the revelations coming out in veteran Congress leader Margaret Alva's book as 'tools' used to market her book, wondering why enlightenment dawned on her after decades of long political career.
