New Delhi, Jan 5: A day after Parliament witnessed a stormy discussion on the Rafale deal, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday launched a fresh attack on Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and said that she spoke for two hours but still did not answer the two questions posed by him.
Gandhi’s statement came as he posted an “edited” video on his Twitter account of the Parliament debate on the deal.
In the video, he can be seen asking two questions: Who took away the contract from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL); and whether Indian Air Force (IAF) officers objected to the changes in the deal.
Sitharaman and other Bharatiya Janata Party ministers are shown to be sitting silently in response to the questions.
“Watch and share this video. Let every Indian ask the Prime Minister and his ministers these questions,” the Congress President said.
Earlier on Friday Soon after the debate Gandhi said that “Many questions were raised. No questions were answered”.
The Congress Chief told media “Many questions were raised. No questions were answered. She (Def Min) didn’t take Anil Ambani’s name for 2 hrs. I asked if objection was raised by Air Force when PM did bypass surgery?”
“Instead of answering this question,she started a drama”, he added.
During the debate, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman dismissed all allegations of corruption.
She said “Rafale will bring back Modi to build a new India and remove corruption.”
