Responding to allegations about his role in the AgustaWestland scam, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that he is always targeted, and he is happy to be targeted.
“I am always being targeted, happy to be targeted,” Rahul told reporters.
On Monday, BJP MP Kirit Somaiya had alleged that Rahul Gandhi and his aide Kanishka Singh connection to Guido Haschke, one of the middlemen in the AgustaWestland scandal and has also written a letter to the ED and CBI to investigate the links between them.
“I had brought to your notice that Mr Haschke is common in both the scams. He is connected with Mr Michel who is involved in helicopter scam,” Somaiya wrote in the letter.
“Emaar-MGF was involved in the CWG scam. There too, there was Guido Haschke. This cannot be a mere coincidence,” Somaiya said.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday Kanishk Singh rubbished allegations of Kirit Somaiya of him having a stake in the AgustaWestland chopper scam.
