The Congress on Tuesday upped the ante on its Rafale battle with the government, with senior leader A K Antony accusing Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman of suppressing facts and making false claims.
Among the Congress leaders who had Y-plus security are former Defence Minister A K Antony, AICC general secretary Ajay Maken, for leader of Opposition in Gujarat Arjun Modhwadia, Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor and former Union minister Sriprakash Jaiswal.
Then defence minister A K Antony replied in the negative in the Upper House to a question on whether AgustaWestland had been blacklisted. He said that the company’s reply to a showcause notice is “under process”.
The Congress has always been supportive to people of West Bengal in their crisis and this would be proved again in the coming days, All India Congress Committee secretary Paresh Dhanani said here on Sunday.
