New Delhi, March 7: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday hit out at the Narendra government over stolen documents related to the Rafale fighter jet deal.
“2 crore jobs are missing, fair MSPs for farmers are missing, Businesses are missing due to GST… And today, Rafale files are missing, the objective of this government is to make things disappear”, said the Congress Chief at a press conference in the national capital.
“They say they want to investigate media for missing Rafale files, but they don’t want to investigate the person who stole ₹30,000Cr, and who conducted parallel negotiations in Rafale deal, for which there is proof”.
Gandhi’s fresh attack comes a day after Attorney General K K Venugopal told the Supreme Court that the Rafale fighter jet deal doucuments were “stolen” from the Defence Ministry.
The Congress Chief further said that everyone is equal under the law. On one hand you are saying, documents are missing, which implies these are authentic documents.
“The contents of the files have clearly stated that the Prime Minister started a parallel negotiation and delivery of Rafale aircrafts was delayed because of his intention to benefit Anil Ambani”.
The Congress leader demanded probe against the Prime Minister for his actions mentioned in those missing documents.
“Investigate the missing documents, but also investigate Narendra Modi for his actions mentioned in those missing documents”, he added.
