"What WikiLeaks has said is wrong. It has been leaking wrong information about many countries and many governments across the world, which is condemnable," he told reporters.
WikiLeaks had claimed that late Rajiv Gandhi, much before becoming Prime Minister, may have been a middleman for a Swedish company trying to sell fighter aircraft to India.
