Congress should accept Italian court’s judgement: Amit Shah

Targeting Congress president Sonia Gandhi over the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam, BJP president Amit Shah today said Congress must accept the judgement of an Italian court in connection with the scam.

“Now Italian court’s (judgement) has come. Accept that. Congress will not accept anything from here but shouldn’t they accept if it is coming from ‘Italy’,” Shah told an election meeting here.

“Italian court’s judgement has come. All papers have not come to us and they (Congress) are saying to do an investigation. Wait. Investigation will be done,” he said.

Earlier in the day, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had said they have received a copy of the Italian court order and is in the process of translating it into English.

While in Bhowanipore constituency where Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee is defending her seat, Shah questioned why the Chief Minister has been silent on the issue so far.

“She knows the moment she utters a word on this, Congress will raise the issue of Saradha scam,” Shah said.

He asserted that in the last two years of Narendra Modi government, no scams have been reported even by the opposition.
