Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is addressing media over a report media report claiming that Congress chief Rahul Gandhi's UK firm Backops Limited acquired defence offsets under the UPA regime.

Although Ulrik Mcknight (Rahul Gandhi's business partner) is an American citizen he is a member of the 'social gang' of Rahul ji: Arun Jaitley

He became part of a corporate group which had no business except pushing transactions. It's a govt-to-govt contract with France: Arun Jaitley

Now Rahul Gandhi is going to be judged by the standards and level of proof he's laid down: Arun Jaitley

This company, Backops Pvt Ltd, doesn’t have any manufacturing unit. This is kind of a liasoning firm. This means we will get your work done and will charge you for it: Jaitley

It's story of a man who aspired to be a defence deal pusher and today aspires to be India's PM. It's a serious charge and I think it's my responsibility to make good discharge: Arun Jaitley

On May 28, 2002, a company is formed in India named Backops Private Limited. Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka become company’s director. In 2003, a company with the same name is formed in Britain. Rahul, along with a US citizen, become company’s directors: Arun Jaitley

This is the story of a man who once wanted to be a defence dealer and now wishes to become the PM of India: Arun Jaitley

Rahul Gandhi withdrew from the British company Backops in 2009 and then the company stopped its operations: Arun Jaitley. 

Ulrik Mcknight was 35% co-owner of Backops UK, in which Rahul Gandhi owned a majority 65% equity between 2003 and 2009 before the firm was wound up, claims Business Today report.
