Kapil Sibal’s reaction came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi asserted that he was not scared of being seen publicly with industrialists as his conscience and intent were clean.
Modi replied after he was targeted by the Congress for his alleged proximity to controversial and corrupt businessmen.
Recently, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi attacked PM Narendra Modi over his alleged links with industrialists especially in reference to Rafale fighter jet deal.
The offset contract relating to Rafale fighter jet was granted to Reliance Defence Ltd .
The entire opposition has been targeting Modi over his picture at Davos economic forum in January this year with fugitive diamondaire Nirav Modi who is at the centre of multi-thousand crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam besides the Prime Minister’s perceived closeness with another fugitive, Mehul Choksi, whom he once publicly addressed as “Mehul bhai”.
