Wikileak cable revelations `piece of fiction`, says George Fernandes` wife Leila

George Fernandes` wife Leila termed Wikileak cable revelations as "piece of fiction" that he sought financial assistance from US spy agency CIA to organise sabotage activities during Emergency.



New Delhi: Socialist leader George Fernandes` wife Leila on Monday termed as "piece of fiction" the Wikileak cable revelations that the fire-brand activist sought financial assistance from US spy agency CIA to organise sabotage activities during Emergency.
The cables during Henry Kissinger`s time, made public by Wikileaks, claimed that then trade union leader Fernandes sought to get funds from CIA and the French government.

"This is a piece of fiction. There is no question of George asking for funds from CIA. He was very anti-American and you know this," Leila told PTI.

"This is complete falsehood, completely concocted and I strongly refute this false story," she said.
