PM Modi Couldn’t Speak on Rafale Even in a Staged Interview, Says Rahul Gandhi
@NSitharaman to respond after.
Lok Sabha is scheduled to take up a discussion on Rafale aircraft deal in the post-lunch session today. K C Venugopal of Congress and Sankar Prasad Datta of CPI(M) have given notices for discussion on Rafale deal.
The main opposition Congress had repeatedly disrupted the proceedings in the House on the issue demanding JPC probe into it. However, on Monday, the party changed its stand saying that it is ready for discussion.
On the other hand, the government has been maintaining that it is ready for discussion on the issue rejecting the opposition demand for JPC probe. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said all doubts on the defence deal will be clarified during the discussion.
Earlier, Home Minister Rajnath Singh had out-rightly rejected corruption allegation into the aircraft deal asserting that a lie spoken repeatedly cannot be a truth.
Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, who chairs the PAC, had said no such report had come to him.
It is very clear that PM does not have the guts to come to Parliament and confront the questions on Rafale: Congress President
