Rahul Gandhi demands probe against PM, calls him 'corrupt person'

RAFALE DEAL

Gandhi's allegations came a day after a report in a French publication that said Dassault Aviation, the manufacturer of Rafale, had to choose Ambani's firm Reliance Defence as its offset partner in India as a trade-off for getting the deal

New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi Thursday demanded an investigation against Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his role in the Rafale deal, alleging that he was a "corrupt man" who helped Anil Ambani pocket Rs 30,000 crore in the purchase of 36 aircraft.

He also described Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman's ongoing three-day visit to France as part of a "great cover-up".

On Wednesday, Mediapart, citing an internal document of Dassault Aviation, reported that the aerospace giant was forced to enter into a joint venture with Reliance Defence as part of a trade-off to bag the contract for the 36 Rafale jet deal.

Questioning Modi's silence on the issue, Gandhi said, “It is clear there is pressure. If he is unable to respond, he should resign. Why has suddenly the defence minister rushed to France? What is the emergency? The #GreatRafaleCoverUp has begun. To try and show the deal is legitimate, Raksha Mantri will need to generate minutes of imaginary meetings held between the French and our Ministry of Defence and both sides will need to agree on a common story to be spun to the media.”

Gandhi lying on Rafale, comes from family of  'middlemen': BJP
Rejecting Rahul Gandhi's allegation of corruption against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Rafale deal, the BJP on Thursday accused the Congress chief of “lying through his teeth shamelessly” and indulging in “politics of misinformation” to build his political career.

Repeatedly calling Gandhi a “clown prince”, the BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra at a press conference also alleged the Congress leader comes from “a family of middlemen” and his his father and former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi was “officially a middleman” in a defence deal.
