BENGALURU: A day after its leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge moved a privilege motion against PM Modi and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitaraman, the Congress has decided to go all out against the BJP over Rafale deal. Congress party’s state units across the country are demanding answers from the NDA government over price discrepancy of the aircraft, violation of procurement procedure and awarding of offset deal to Reliance Defence and Engineering Ltd owned by Anil Ambani. Addressing the media, KPCC Chief Dinesh Gundu Rao on Thursday said that Modi had not only misled the nation but was willing to sell the country to help his ‘friends’.
“The PM’s refusal to answer straight questions asked by Rahul Gandhi over the deal shows this deal is far more nefarious and corrupt than one can imagine. With this deal, the PM will go down in history as someone who dismantled the integrity of our national security to favour a friend,” Rao said.
Dinesh said that the ‘acche din’ had for sure come but only for crony capitalists.
