NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a dig at the Centre over the Rafale deal and the rising fuel prices and said that the people who question the government are imprisoned.

Taking to Twitter Congress leader urged people to fill the blanks.

"Fill in the blank: Rafale of 'friendship', Tax collection - oil is expensive, There is a blind sale of PSU-PSB, Questioning will lead you to jail, Modi government is ____!" the Congress MP said in a tweet (roughly translated from Hindi).
