Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday launched a fresh attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Rafale and accused PM Modi of running “parallel negotiations” with the French side.
“For more than a year, we’ve been saying that PM is directly involved in Rafale scam. Today it is clear that PM himself had been carrying out a parallel negotiation,” Gandhi said at a press briefing in New Delhi.
Rahul said, we have been saying that there should be an inquiry through JPC. Now Ministry itself has said, “we may advise PMO that any Officers who are not part of Indian Negotiating Team may refrain from having parallel parlays”
On his meeting with Goa chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, Rahul said, “I met Manohar Parrikar ji, but there was no discussion on Rafale. It was just a courtesy visit to inquire about his health.”
On being asked about the PM’s yesterday remarks that the thief is scolding the watchman Rahul said, “So is the PM suffering from dual personality he is thief one day and watchman another day…is he schizophrenic?”
Here are updates on Rahul Gandhi’s press briefing on Rafale:
Modi government can do any inquiry they want on any of the Congress leaders. We are ready to face it. But he should do an inquiry on Rafale scam too
Yesterday, Modi gave a lengthy sermon, why doesn’t he answer these questions? Why doesn’t he state the reason for parallel negotiations?
We have been saying that there should be an inquiry through JPC. Now Ministry itself has said, “we may advise PMO that any Officers who are not part of Indian Negotiating Team may refrain from having parallel parlays
Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman too lied. Former French President has admitted that he was made to choose Anil Ambani by PM Modi himself
Defence Secretary of India says, “It is desirable that such discussions be avoided by the PMO as it undermines our negotiating position seriously.” It cannot be written stronger than this
