Patna: RJD President Lalu Prasad on Saturday came out in strong defence of Congress President Sonia Gandhi in AgustaWestland helicopter deal and attacked BJP for "trying to trap her".

"Sonia Gandhi is the 'bahu' (daughter-in-law) of the country. BJP is trying to trap her in the chopper deal," Prasad said after a meeting with JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar.

 

"It's an attempt by the BJP to harass a 'bhali aurat' (nice woman) ... This is too much," he said.

The RJD chief, whose party is a partner in the Grand Secular Alliance in Bihar with JD(U) and Congress, questioned the "insincerity" of NDA government in getting the helicopter deal probed in the two years of its rule.

Criticising BJP and RSS, he said, "They are fountainhead of corruption."

Earlier in the day, Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) President Nitish Kumar had also attacked BJP-led NDA government over AgustaWestland helicopter deal and hit out at Sonia Gandhi over it.
