Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday in his latest allegation over Rafale used a fresh media report alleging that PM Modi had acted as a “middleman” for industrialist Anil Ambani in the Rafale fighter deal and accused him of violating the Official Secrets Act (OSA)
Rahul cited an email from an Airbus executive to attribute leakages of the Rafale deal MoU to Anil Ambani and accused Prime Minister Modi of treachery.
“An email has come into light that states “Anil Ambani visited the Minister’s office… Mentioned MoU in preparation & intention to sign during PM visit”. How is Anil Ambani meeting the French Defence Minister prior to PM’s visit?” Rahul said.
“Modi is under oath to protect secrets. He has given these secrets to Anil Ambani, who knew about the biggest defence deal in the world 10 days before. This itself is criminal. This itself will put the Prime Minister in jail, “Congress President said.
“You are corrupt, you are a liar and you committed treason to help your friend. The people of India are not going to stay silent like you do,” Rahul added.
Rahul said, “Defence Minister says he doesn’t know about the new deal, whereas Anil Ambani is sitting in the French Defence Minister’s office saying PM will sign an MoU with him involved. This is the breach of the Official Secrets Act.”
“Earlier there was one axis of corruption, second axis of procedure. This is the third, and frankly a serious one, where PM Modi has compromised national security. Supreme Court judgement is open to question. It does not have jurisdiction and has quoted the CAG report which does not exist,” Rahul said.
