Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the alleged â€œloss to the public exchequer" in Rafale fighter aircraft agreement.
â€œI answer all your questions, whatever you ask me. Why donâ€™t you question Prime Minister Modi on the Rafale deal,â€ Rahul asked media.
Rahul Gandhi was interacting with media after the the meeting of the newly launched All India Un-organised Workers Congress (AIUWC).
You ask me so many questions & I answer you properly, why don't you ask the PM about Rafale deal? He changed the whole deal for benefit of one businessman. Why don't you ask questions about Amit Shah's son? These are the questions I wanted to ask you: Rahul Gandhi pic.twitter.com/p5S3nPMecRâ€” ANI (@ANI) November 16, 2017
Earleir in the week, the Congress party has alleged Modi government of compromising national interests and security in the new Rafale deal.
The Congressâ€™ communications department head Randeep Surjewala alleged that the Rafale aircrafts were being purchased at much higher rates than what was decided under the previous UPA government.
BJP has rubbished the allegations of Congress and said the party is trying to â€œdivert attentionâ€ from the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scandal in which some of its leaders are being questioned.
