New Delhi: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has been asked by Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha, of which he is a member, to authenticate all documents he quoted from in his speech during the debate on the AgustaWestland chopper bribery scam earlier this week.
The newly-nominated Rajya Sabha MP has been asked to authenticate all documents by 6 pm today.
As per ANI, if Swamy fails to do so, all the claims he made during the debate while referring to the documents will be deleted from record.
“Mr Subramanian Swamy must authenticate all documents he quoted from by 6 pm today, or all of it will be deleted from records,” Deputy Chairman PJ Kurien said, as per ANI.
Swamy has said that the "Congress is not able to tolerate facts" which he spoke about in the Rajya Sabha.
Congress leaders, on the other hand, have accused him of lying.
Ever since his debut in the Upper House last week, Swamy has been on the centre stage and made headlines.
His remarks were consecutively struck off the records last week, with the Congress saying: "He does not know the difference between words spoke on the streets and words spoke in Parliament."
