Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday took a jibe at the congress party stating that “During Congress’ tenure, every defence deal was shady. They took kickbacks in Bofors and Quattrochi was allowed to flee. For decades, our armed forces didn’t get a new weapon.”
While addressing a rally in Panaji, Modi said that the Congress can go to any heights for power and accused the party of taking kickbacks in Bofors.
PM Modi said that Goa saw 13 CMs during the period between 1990 and 2000. He further said that the Congress used to be in the news for dynasty and corruption during this ten-year period. “The BJP has brought Goa on a new track and it can be credited to Parrikar ji and his team,” he added.
PM Modi said that the modus operandi of Congress was the same in helicopter scam as in the Bofors case. He added that they let Michel flee to another country to escape investigation.
