Aam Aadmi Party under the leadership of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejrwal launched a demonstration against the BJP and Congress over AgustaWestland Chopper deal scandal. Addressing the party workers today at Jantar Mantar, Arvind Kejriwal said that Modi doesn’t have the courage to take on Sonia in connection with AgustaWestland case. He also said that two years have passed since Modi came to power and no action has been taken against the corrupted politicians yet.
“Before 2014 elections, Modi ji had promised the people of this country that he will punish the corrupt. But it has been two years but nobody has been jailed…the probe has not moved an inch,” he said.
Daring Modi to take up legal actions against Sonia and her kin, AAP leader said that Modi and Sonia have made a deal to not take on each other.
AAP workers held placards saying,” Modiji, why are you protecting Soniaji”, and raised slogans against PM Modi and Congress leaders who are allegedly accused in the case.
According to the sources, Police lathicharged Aam Admi protesters during Dharna.
This is not first time Kejriwal coming forward demanding sudden legal action in AgustaWestland case. He had earlier questioned the silence of PM Narendra Modi over AgustaWestland case asking him whether he will come forward to interrogate those named in Italian Court order.
“Why is the PM silent on Agusta? First BJP spared Vadra, now protecting entire Congress top brass in Augusta?,” the Delhi Chief Minister said on twitter taking a dig at Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra.
Meantime, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday promised that all those invovled in the AgustaWestland chopper scam will be punished.
Addressing election rallies in Chennai and Hosur town in Tamil Nadu, Modi said the scandal had become public after the BJP took power in New Delhi in 2014.
Asking the people whether they have any relatives in Italy, Modi said: “I don’t have any relatives in Italy. Nor have I visted Italy.”
But people in Italy have said there was corruption in the chopper deal and a court there had punished names of those involved, he said.
