Rahul had asked who had given an offset contract to Anil Ambani and whether the officials of the Ministry of Defence objected to this when the Prime Minister had a “bypass surgery” for the deal.
Just reply yes or no he had asked Sitharaman
He posted a video on twitter saying “View and share this video. Ask questions from each Indian PM and his ministers.”
Congress has accused the 36 aircraft deal of irregularities and has claimed that the Narendra Modi government is buying them, which is being negotiated by the previous government, more than the price at which it was being negotiated. The party has also been accusing the government that it is taking the side of Anil Ambani’s firm in the deal.
However, the government, as well as Ambani, have rejected all the allegations.
