Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday continued his attack on PM Modi over the Rafale deal and said there is dissent within the government on the matter.
“Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman blatantly lied in Parliament and claimed that the price of Rafale is a secret, while, Dassault’s Annual Report openly states the price,” Rahul said.
The truth has a way of coming out and Modi govt can’t hide from it. They bypassed years of negotiations undertaken by the UPA govt with the sole purpose of benefiting Anil Ambani.
“CBI Director was removed at midnight because Prime Minister Modi feared an investigation on the Rafale Scam,” Rahul said.
“Entire country knows that Modi stole opportunities from youth to give ₹30,000Cr to Anil Ambani,” Rahul added.
Rahul Gandhi talked about the history where he mentioned that Congress party’s history and BJP-RSS’ history is very different. We protect truth and they protect the lie.
“We do not want to divide the country. We want everyone to be treated equally,” Rahul said.
In last five-years, Modi government has divided the country. They wanted Congress-mukt Bharat, Congress is not just an organisation, it is a representation of the country.
Talking about RSS, the Congress chief said, “RSS thinks they are the authority and source of knowledge in this country. They are absolutely wrong. It’s the people of this country who are the source of knowledge.”
The Congress chief also said he had met Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who was the defence minister before becoming chief minister of Goa. “Parrikar clearly stated that he has nothing to do with the new deal that was orchestrated by Narendra Modi to benefit Anil Ambani,” Rahul said.
