New Delhi:

Trinamool Congress (TMC), which is facing the Congress-Left combine in the West Bengal assembly election, today sought to corner the Congress in Rajya Sabha

by raising the AgustaWestland helicopter issue and wanting to know who the ‘Gandhi’ and ‘AP’ are the alleged bribe seekers in the deal.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Sukhendu Shekhar Roy (TMC) wanted to know who has taken bribe in the deal to buy 12 VVIP helicopters.

“Defence Minister has to give a statement. Why is the government silent,” he asked. “Who is this AP (named as alleged bribe taker in the deal)? Who is Gandhi? Who is Shashikant.”

He wanted the Defence Minister to make a statement on the issue after suspending regular business and matter discussed.

“Government has to disclose the identity (of bribe takers),” he said.

Deputy Chairman P J Kurien said there is no rule for suspension of business during Zero Hour and disallowed his notice.
