New Delhi, Dec 31: Close on the heels of Congress fielding former Defence Minister A K Antony to claim that Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi never interfered in any defence deals during the rule of the previous UPA Government, BJP chief Amit Shah on Monday continued to target the first political dynasty in the country.
"Does anyone know why Christian Michel passed on the details of questioning on Mrs. (Sonia) Gandhi to his lawyer?," Mr Shah tweeted.
He said: "Michel’s lawyer has admitted that the paper was indeed passed on to him. He thought that it was a list of medicines, which could have been transparently given in any case".
"We have heard of Zandu Balm and Tiger Balm but what is this ‘Family Balm’ that every middleman wants?," the BJP chief wrote.
He said: "Trails of the AgustaWestland Case…the SOS of Christian Michel. Does anyone know why Christian Michel passed on the details of questioning on Mrs. Gandhi to his Lawyer? Did he want them to be passed on to Mrs. Gandhi herself? Why?"
Earlier, Mr Antony said: "As a former Defence Minister in the UPA Government, I want to state that Mrs Sonia Gandhi or Mr Rahul Gandhi never interfered in the AgustaWestland deal. In fact, Mrs Gandhi and Mr Rahul Gandhi never interfered in any defence deal.’’UNI
