New Delhi: The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday alleged that an 'extended hand of 10 Janpath' was working to protect key accused of Agusta-Westland middleman Christian Michel. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra, on Thursday held a press conference in the New Delhi and said that three Congress lawyers were appointed as Michel's lawyers 'to save him' and with a purpose to send the information regarding proceedings against him to 'the family' — in a not direct reference to the Gandhi family.
"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. The family in Congress is getting sleepless nights," Patra alleged during the press conference.
"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 3 have worked under big Cong lawyers like Salman Khurshid and Kapil Sibal," Patra further cornered Congress.
Worth mention here earlier, the court granted Michel's lawyer Aljo Joseph the permission to meet Michel twice a day. It is noted that Joseph met Michel on Thursday morning and spent about 25 minutes with the alleged AgustaWestland fixer man as Times Now channel reported.
