New Delhi: Congress went into a huddle to chalk out a strategy ahead of Defence Minister Manohor Parrikar’s statement on the AgustaWestland deal in parliament on Wednesday.
The senior Congress leaders went to party president Sonia Gandhi’s residence on Tuesday evening to discuss how to counter the BJP in parliament on the AgustaWestland issue.
Parrikar will make a statement in the Rajya Sabha at 2 p.m. on Wednesday during a debate on AgustaWestland issue.
Parrikar is likely to respond once the issue comes up, a BJP source said.
Congress members have also threatened to raise the CAG reports on the alleged mismanagement in the Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation (GSPC) during the tenure of Narendra Modi as chief minister.
