“If the government is alleging, then they should investigate. If anything is there against me, they should find out and hang me,” he addd.

Another Congress leader Oscar Fernandes said: “If the government has got any information, then let them come and make a statement in the House.”

The chopper deal scam has led to an uproar in parliament after reports that an Italian court has found that around Rs.120-125 crore was paid to Indian officials to get the $530 million contract for the VVIP chopper deal.

The court order, according to media reports, showed that the firm lobbied with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her close aides, including Patel, and then prime minister Manmohan Singh.
