American whistleblower C Edmonds Allen wrote a letter to PMO, where he claimed that BJP Sultanpur MP Varun Gandhi has been honey-trapped and compromised by arms dealer named Abhishek Verma.
We have some exclusive report on the news; We contacted Abhishek Verma about the allegations made by C Edmonds Allen, Verma said- “Allen planted the whole story and uses fabricated photos too”.
Abhishek Verma also said former AAP member Prashant Bhushan also involved in the issue. Verma Said – “Allen hates me so does Prashant Bhushan, who both want to create a controversy unnecessarily to defame Varun and Me”.
The Economic Times broke the story that famous American whistle-blower C Edmonds Allen,who has exposed a number of controversial arms deals, has written to the PMO that Gandhi is being blackmailed by Verma.
According to the Economic Times report, C Edmond Allen, in his letter to the PMO on September 16, has even given a Compact Disc containing dozens of photographs to back his claim. Copies of the letter have also been sent to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval.
Allen says the letters have been sent to the top government functionaries to identify if any other members of the defence consultative committee or their staff are compromised by the likes of Abhishek Verma. C Edmond Allen is also the former agent of Verma.
Why Varun Gandhi ?
Well, the answer is Varun Gandhi, 36, used to be a member of the high-profile Defence Consultative Committee. The report quotes senior BJP leaders clarifying that classified information on defence is not shared with members of the parliamentary committee.
When The Economic Times asked Varun Gandhi about the allegations, he called them “too ridiculous to comment on”.
Meanwhile, the PMO did not respond to a questionnaire sent by the business daily.
UP elections are near, The party celebrated earlier because Rita Bahuguna joined the party has some tough roads ahead if these allegations turned out to be true. It would be a big blow to the party who were hoping to sit on the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister chair coming next year.
