New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday heaped praise on Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar for his speech on the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

Taking to Twitter, Modi described Parrikar's address as one of the best speeches.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday said the probe in the AgustaWestland helicopter graft case will focus on those named in the Italian court judgment.

"There is an agreement that corrupt practices were involved in procurement of AgustaWestland helicopters. The previous government recognised these and put on hold the group in 2014, and the present government passed the order," Parrikar said in the Rajya Sabha, replying to a short duration discussion on the issue.

 

The judgment names Congress president Sonia Gandhi, then IAF chief SP Tyagi, Congress leader Ahmad Patel and others.

The Congress has, however, stressed that the judgment does not indict anyone.
