BJP has started shedding light on Augusta Westland chopper case, after the principal accused claims in this case. Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad took a jibe on Congress leaders and said “Whenever there is mention of any defence deal, the names of Congress leaders crop up. This has been the pattern for decades,” Mr Prasad questioned “There is no deal without a deal and there is no contract without a cut. Why do they have to play with the country’s defence for their personal gains?” The verbal attacks started after the principal accused in the Augusta Westland case Mr Rajeev Saxena’s mentioning in a daily newspaper about the links of senior leaders in this case. He mentioned senior Congress members Ahmed Patel and Salman Khurshid, along with former Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath’s son and nephew Bakul Nath and Ratul Puri respectively, in relation to alleged payoffs by middleman Christian Michel in the deal.
