For the Prime Minister Narendra Modi lead BJP government at the Centre, the news of Dubai court ordering extradition of Christian Michel to India in the in- famous Augusta Westland chopper deal could not have come at a right time.
The government has been facing the heat from the Congress on host of issues — over the Rafale deal , the surge in fuel prices , fall in the rupee and the loopholes coming to the fore as to how liquor baron Vijay Mallya escaped to flee under its very nose.
The Dubai court order is a great relief for agencies the CBI and the ED who had worked hard to nab him.
For BJP the ruling gives them the chance to take on the Congress as the chopper scam happened under their tenure.
Michel has been extensively interviewed by the Indian media in Dubai in the past and both the agencies want him to join the probe to take the case forward.
