New Delhi: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi in poll-bound Gujarat Saturday and alleged the latter did not want the “truth” behind the multi-crore Rafale deal and Jay Shah issue to come out before the Assembly election in his home state. He alleged that the NDA government was delaying the Winter Session of Parliament as PM Modi was not ready to discuss the Rafale and Jay Shah issues in the House before the Gujarat polls. 

"I would ask Modiji three questions (on the Rafale deal). First, is there a difference in the cost of planes in the first and the second contract (signed with a French firm) and did India pay more or less money as per the second contract?  And, has the industrialist (whose company has formed a joint venture with the French firm), who was given the contract, ever manufactured planes?," he asked at a public gathering in Gandhinagar district. 

 

The Congress leader asked: “And a more important question, did you follow the due government procedure? Why was the (then) defence minister seen catching fish in Goa? And, was an approval from the Cabinet Committee on Security taken (for the mega deal)?.”
