Rubbishing the ‘baseless’ allegations levelled by Kirit Somaiya in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s aide Kanishka Singh on Tuesday alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP has been making false allegations against him with malafide intention since February 2013.

“Mr. Somaiya’s allegations about me are entirely baseless, false and with an ulterior political motive. Somaiya has been making these false allegations about me with malafide intent since February 2013,” he said in a statement.

Kanishka also asked Somaiya to provide proof at the earliest to the NDA Government and its agencies, which would facilitate the investigation and enable prosecution of the guilty.

He also said that it is up to the agencies to investigate whether the officials of AgustaWestland were involved with Emaar-MGF or not.

Talking about his relations with realty company owner Rajiv Gupta and his family, Kanishka said that he has been on estranged terms with the former and his family members.

Somaiya has alleged that Rahul Gandhi and his aide were connected to Guido Haschke, one of the middlemen in the AgustaWestland deal.

Somaiya has alleged Haschke is also involved in the CWG scam.

“Emaar-MGF was involved in the CWG scam. There too, there was Guido Haschke. This cannot be a mere coincidence,” Somaiya said.
