New Delhi, Nov 2: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday targetted Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying Rafale jet deal is a PM Modi-Anil Ambani partnership.
Addressing a press conference, Gandhi said ” Dassault invested Rs 284 Crore in the company of Anil Ambani. Anil Ambani bought land with the same money. This is clear that Dassault CEO is lying. Why did they invest Rs 284 crore in a loss-making company?.
“Rafale is an open and shut case. It is simply a PM Modi-Anil Ambani partnership”, he added.
The Congress President alleged that PM Modi personally took this decision. The then Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar clarified that he had nothing to do with the Rafale deal.
“If an enquiry starts on this, the Prime Minister is not going to survive that enquiry”, he stated.
Continuing his attack, Gandhi asserted “the Dassault CEO had said the reason HAL wasn’t given the contract was because Anil Ambani had land. Now it turns out that the land that Anil Ambani had was purchased by money given by Dassault”.
