Congress President Rahul Gandhi challenged PM Modi for the debate on the Rafale deal issue. Gandhi raised several questions on the Rafale deal, accusing the government of compromising with national interests.
Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at the Modi government “Chowkidar Hi Bhaagidar Hai. (This watchman is a collaborator),” and in an attack he accused PM Modi of stealing the money of taxpayers and said that he is giving the money to his friend who has allegedly bagged a contract in the Rafale deal.
On the Rafale deal he said, ” Let a debate happen between me and Narendra Modi on Rafael deal… I will speak at length for hours,” Gandhi said at “Jana Dwani” (people’s voice) rally.
