NEW DELHI: Congress president Rahul Gandhi continued his attack on the government over the Rafale deal and said PM Modi was not answering his questions because there was something “fishy” in it.
Referring to Modi’s speeches in Parliament, Rahul said it was clear he was not interested in answering “fundamental questions”. Rahul said defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman had first announced she would inform the nation about the cost of the Rafale aircraft but was now saying she could not do so as it was a state secret. “Which of her two statements are correct?” he asked.
Rahul said he had also posed three questions to Modi. These included the aircraft’s cost and “handing over” the deal to a businessman after “snatching” it from a public undertaking. However, there was no reply, he added.
AICC spokesman Anand Sharma charged the PM with political corruption.
