AK Antony: Sonia, Rahul never interfered in defence deals

Dec 31, 2018 18:43 IST

Defending Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi from the political fallout of the AugustaWestland VVIP chopper scam, former defence minister A K Antony said that former and current Congress presidents had not interfered in defence deals during the UPA years. He accused the centre of 'misusing agencies' to 'manufacture lies'. "As former defence minister, I would like to categorically state that Sonia Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi never showed any interest in any defence deal. The moment the report came from Italy that there is corruption in this case, it was me who had ordered a CBI enquiry, not this government", said Antony.
