“BJP demands setting up of a SIT toinvestigate into serious charges aboutpayments made in AugustaWestland VVIPchopper purchase. The probe should beeither under the supervision of theSupreme Court or the ParliamentaryCommittee, because the Congress party isnotoriously known for misusing CBI,”Naidu told media here.

“That’s why the BJP is not expectable tothis suggestion of CBI inquiry. Becausethe CBI has no credibility and thegovernment intention is also doubtful,because this issue was raised in 2011 inthe Parliament and also a letter waswritten to the Defence Minister, in spite ofthat the government did not act so far,” headded.He further said that the oppositionparty would corner the governmnet onthis issue in Parliament.
