New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday praised Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar for his reply to the debate on AgustaWestland chopper deal in the Rajya Sabha yesterday, saying he had presented "all relevant facts" rising "above politics".

He also put the speech of Parrikar on his Twitter account, urging his followers to listen to it.

 

"Yesterday's speech by RM @manoharparrikar in the Rajya Sabha was one of the best speeches, displaying best parliamentary traditions," Modi tweeted.

"RM @manoharparrikar rose above politics & placed all relevant facts on the table. Urging you all to hear his speech," the Prime Minister said in another tweet.

Parrikar had targeted the previous UPA regime over the controversial deal and suggested the role of an "invisible hand" in preventing a proper investigation earlier.

He had said that ongoing probe will focus on those named in the Italian Court judgement on the controversy surrounding the Rs 3600 crore deal for 12 VVIP helicopters.
