Union home minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday took a dig at the Congress leadership's "disturbing looks" over the AgustaWestland chopper scam and deplored the Left parties for maintaining silence on the issue.
"Entire country wants to know who gave it (bribe) and who received it (bribe). This is being investigated. Why are they (Congress) so disturbed? Investigations will clear the situation. Whatever be the case, justice will be done," Singh told ETon Sunday.
Singh expressed surprise over the Congress allegation that the issue was being used to run a malicious campaign against its leadership. Rajnath Singh, in this backdrop, rejected apprehensions of any vindictive action. "Transparency is the commitment of our government.
There is no question of any meddling (ghalmel ka prashn hi nahin khada hota hai)," he said. In the backdrop of assembly polls in West Bengal where the Left and Congress are contesting elections in alliance, Singh said: "What is most surprising is that one doesn't get to read any statement from the Left Front on the issue. Why are they silent on the Agusta issue? This is a secret entire country wants to know."
The former BJP president, in fact, took this issue to the electorate during his public meetings in North Bengal assembly segments bordering Bangladesh. "The scam in helicopter purchase has rocked Delhi. Serious allegations have come at the doors of the Congress. But leaders of the Left Front are keeping mum...
They won't speak because they are more interested in power (in West Bengal)...Because they are contesting together," Rajnath said during public meetings at Mathabhanga
