New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said that the extradition of Christian Michel, the alleged middleman in the Rs 3,600-crore AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal, was a diplomatic victory for India and could spell “serious trouble” for the ‘family’ in Congress.
“The Congress is rattled after the extradition of Christian Michel. They sent their team to save Michel. Congress’s Aljo Joseph appeared for him in Court, they later went through the charade of removing him,” BJP’s Sambit Patra.
“The family in Congress is getting sleepless nights,” Patra said.
He added that other than Aljo Joseph, there are two other lawyers of Christian Michel — Vishnu Shankar who is the son of a Kerala Congress leader and Sriram Parakkat who has been an NSUI member. All three have worked under big Congress lawyers like Salman Khurshid and Kapil Sibal.
The Congress on Wednesday expelled Aljo Joseph from the party after he appeared in a court for Christian Michel, the middleman in VVIP chopper deal.
