Govt offers JPC to probe VVIP Chopper Deal scandal, BJP rejects

In a major row over probe of VVIP Chopper Deal, Rajya Sabha’s recent decision of forming a 30-member Joint Parliamentary Committee in Budget session 2013 has dismissed by Opposition party.

Favouring to go with a JPC probe into the Italian 3600 crore AgustaWestland helicopter scandal, Defence Minister A K Antony promised to punish those who are responsible, found guilty, reports said.

“It’s a matter of shame for us every time a scam is reported,” Antony said, source said, adding, “I want to find the truth and punish the guilty.”

While, BJP demanded a time-bound CBI probe under the supervision of the Supreme Court, alleging JPC probe decision as a counsel for scuttling the probe because the Lok Sabha term will end in about a year’s time.

The party has no trust over government, alleged took Parliament in dark and delay in ordering the investigation over allegations of kickbacks in the Rs. 4000 crore VVIP chopper deal.
