New Delhi, Jan 11 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Friday backed former Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) director Alok Verma and said that he should have been given a chance to speak in his defense. Speaking on the issue, Swamy said, “Why did he (Alok Verma) not get the right to speak in his defense? In our judicial system everyone who has charged against him is given a right to speak. But in this case he did not get a chance to speak. I have put my criticism only on this topic.” Alok Verma was on January 10 removed as the CBI Director on account of the “extremely serious nature of observations made by the CVC against him”.
