    BJP attacks Congress first family using VVIP chopper scam chargesheet

    Rahul Gandhi talks on several subjects without even having a nodding acquaintance with it. He makes wild and unsubstantiated allegations against all and sundry. Now, who are ‘RG’, ‘AP’ and ‘FAM’ mentioned in the chargesheet in the AugustaWestland case, Arun Jaitley said today in a blog. 

    Arguments of probity in the public space demand more answers.  Are ‘RG’, ‘AP’ and ‘FAM’ fictional characters or were they in a position to influence the deal? How come every time there is a controversial defence deal and evidence is collected, names close to the Congress Party’s first family start appearing? Who are these ‘RG’, ‘AP’ and ‘FAM’? Are they fictional characters who influenced the deal? The Right to Silence is available to an accused, not to a Prime Ministerial aspirant.

    "It was not only Muslims, but the names of 22 lakh Hindus and also Gorkhas, Biharis, Tamils and people from Kerala and Rajasthan have been left out from the NRC. We are fighting to get all of their names included," she said.
