Yechury said A K Antony, the Defence Minister, who claims to be Mr Clean, was trying to shield the culprits. Instead of black listing the Israel company, which is facing a CBI proble over its Barak Missile deal with India during the NDA regime, the UPA government made another contract with the company in question to the tune of Rs.10,000 crore.
