No one who cheats India can hide anywhere in the world, Union Minister Arun Jaitley said on Thursday, adding that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has introduced a culture of honesty in governance. 

Jaitley's remarks come against the backdrop of Dubai-based businessman Rajeev Saxena and corporate aviation lobbyist Deepak Talwar getting deported to India. They have been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate.

"The UPA Skeletons are tumbling out by the day. Why did all Defence purchases need middlemen?," the union minister said in a series of tweets. 

Saxena is wanted in the Rs 3,600 crore AgustaWestland VVIP chopper money laundering case while Talwar is wanted by the ED and the CBI in a case of allegedly misusing over Rs 90 crore taken through foreign funding route.

"No one who cheats INDIA can hide anywhere in the world and escape. INDIA's Diplomatic strength and more civilised International procedures will get better of him," he added. 

"If the Prime Minister is honest, if he imposes a culture of honesty in governance, no person who cheats India will escape," Jaitley said.
