Prime News, National (New Delhi), January 3:- Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a one-on-one debate on the issue of Rafale fighter jets deal. Addressing a press conference after the debate in Parliament over Rafale, the Congress chief said that Prime Minister Modi did not have the “guts to face him”.
According to Rahul Gandhi, the Supreme Court never said that there should be no Joint Parliamentary Committee or investigation into the Rafale fighter jets deal between India and France. When asked if the Congress would probe the deal if voted to power in 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the party chief said, “We will definitely investigate the Rafale deal.”
Rahul Gandhi also used the opportunity to hit out at Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who led the government offensive during Rafale debate in Lok Sabha, saying he “has a habit of repeatedly lying”. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
