Mumbai: A fresh attack on PM Narendra Modi over rafale deal Congress party president Rahul Gandhi said “on Rafael deal, the Prime Minister’s Office was directly involved with France and Prime Minister Narendra Modi was guilty in this scandal.”
In response to the report in The Hindu newspaper, he claimed that the Ministry of Defense strongly objected to the “parallel discussion” made by the PMO during a negotiation on Rafael Deal of Rs 59,000 crore between India and France.
“I want to talk to each member of the Armed Forces of this nation … here, it is very clear that the prime minister has stolen 30,000 crore rupees of your wealth, has sidelined a process, and his friend Mr. Anil “Ambani,” Gandhi said at a press conference.
Gandhi came out of a document which was taken from the Ministry of Defense published in the newspaper.
“Now, it is clear that the ministry has said it itself,” so it is clear that parallel discussions by the PMO have weakened the dialogue of the MOD and the Indian Dialogue, we can advise. Said that any officer who is not part of the Negotiation team can escape the parallel parleys with a French government official.
On Thursday, the prime minister also hit back at the Congress over the Rafale issue, alleging that the Congress did not want the Indian Air Force to be strong.
