The main Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday accused the government of deliberately misrepresenting facts to save Bofors pay-off accused Ottavio Quattrocchi and added that the case against him was withdrawn as he was privy to information which if revealed could embarrass the Congress leadership.
“Government of India is deliberately misrepresenting facts to save Quattrocchi. An agency called AE Services had worked to get Bofors the contract. And the principal beneficiary of AE Services is Ottavio Quattrocchi,” contended BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad.
“Quattrocchi knows a lot and if he speaks he may say a lot (baat bahut door tak jayegi),” said Prasad.
