New Delhi: The BJP on Saturday attacked Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his alleged link to a defence firm that got offset contract when the UPA was in power and asked the Opposition party to respond to what it said is a very serious charge.
Finance minister Arun Jaitley cited a media report and gave more information that he said he had found out to take a swipe at Mr Gandhi, saying it is story of a man who aspired to be a defence deal pusher and is now aspiring to be Prime Minister.
Rejecting the charge, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said it is an allegation that needs to be proved.
Hitting out at Mr Gandhi, Jaitley asked, “The question is how will you like now to be judged. You are judging others when there is no evidence. You distance yourself from a shady company launched by you and then your partner gets an offset contract.”...
