NEW DELHI: Taking a dig at Congress after it asked questions to the government over the AgustaWestland scam, BJP said it was ironical that those who should be answering charges are levelling allegations.
The Congress, the party said, should instead respond to the questions its chief Amit Shah asked today.
BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma said the questions raised by Congress are a "bundle of lies" as he rejected its charge that the NDA government removed the maker of AgustaWestland choppers from the blacklist. "There is a ban on any government transaction with the firm," he said.
He also rejected the Congress's charge that government had done nothing in the last two years in the VVIP chopper scam probe and said it had taken up the matter of middleman Christian Michel's extradition with the government of the UK after the CBI got a red corner notice against him from the Interpol.
Enforcement Directorate is also probing the matter, he said.
"It is bizarre and ironical that those who should be answering questions are instead raising questions. Congress is not only corrupt but also a master in speaking brazen lies," he said.
