Cong, BJP in war of words over Agusta middleman Michel

The BJP on Thursday accused the Congress of defending Christian Michel, the alleged middleman in the Rs 3,600-crore AgustaWestland chopper deal, while the opposition party hit back, saying it is a case of the pot calling the kettle black . Two days after Michel was extradited from Dubai, the BJP said the development has rattled the Congress and that its extended hand is defending the alleged middleman to protect the family , in an obvious reference to the Gandhis. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said all three lawyers, including Youth Congress functionary Aljo K Joseph, who appeared for Michel in a court, had links with the Congress. Countering the charge, the Congress said the BJP linking it with Michel on the basis of an expelled lawyer is a case of the pot calling the kettle black . Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill said if the BJP can link his party to Michel on the basis of a lawyer then the ruling party should answer about Finance Minister Arun Jaitley s family members
