BJP Government is Sleeping Since 2 Years Accuses AK Antony | VVIP Chopper Scam

Replying to AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam allegations, former Union Defence Minister AK Antony on Wednesday (April 27) said, “Last two years BJP Government has done nothing. They were sleeping.” A Milan Court of Appeals sentenced Finmeccanica’s former chief Giuseppe Orsi to 4.5 years in jail for false accounting and corruption in the deal of 12 VVIP choppers to India for over Rs 3,600 crore while former CEO of Finmeccanica’s helicopter subsidiary AgustaWestland, Bruno Spagnolini, has been handed over four year sentence. On January 1, 2014, India scrapped the contract with AgustaWestland for supplying 12 AW101 VVIP choppers to the Indian Air Force (IAF) over allegations of kickbacks by it for securing the deal. The then UPA government had also barred Finmeccanica and its group companies from participating in any new programme of the defence ministry.
