Gujarat Elections 2017: Rahul Gandhi Asks Media To Question PM Modi Over Rafale Deal


Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday exhorted media to question Prime Minister Narendra Modi in connection with Centre's alleged involvement in corruption cases particularly the Rafale deal which grabbed headlines on Wednesday.

While speaking to reporters after attending the launch of the first convention by All India Un-organised Workers Congress at AICC, Gandhi said to the reporters in Delhi: 

"You ask me so many questions and I answer you properly. Why don't you ask the Prime Minister about Rafale deal? He changed the whole deal for the benefit of one businessman. Why don't you ask questions about Amit Shah's son? These are the questions I wanted to ask you."

Congress has alleged that PM Modi government promoted the interest of Prime Minister's capitalist allies, by signing the Rafale aircraft agreement for the purchase of 36 fighter aircrafts without following the Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP).

In the run-up to the Gujarat polls, the Congress vice president has been aggressively targeting Modi government in his election campaign.
