Former French president’s statement has termed PM Modi a ‘thief’, alleges Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi | Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday alleged that former French President Francois Hollande statement about the Indo-France Rafale deal has termed the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi a ‘thief’.

Addressing a Press Conference, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said, “Ex-President of France stated that the French government didn’t have any say in this matter. What he is saying is, PM of India is a thief”.”For the first time, an ex-French President is calling our PM a thief. It is a question of the dignity of the office of Prime Minister. It is the question of the future of our jawans and the Air Force,” added Gandhi.

Asking PM Modi to clear his stand on Hollande statement Rahul Gandhi said, “It is very important for PM now to either accept Mr. Hollande’s statement or state that Mr. Hollande is lying and tell what the truth is.” Raising a question on PM Modi silence the Congress president asked, “What I’m surprised with is that PM is completely silent. Not one word has come out from PM’s mouth on this. This is from a President of France, who had a one-to-one meeting with PM where the Rafale deal was decided.”

Questioning the role of Anil Ambani company in the Rafale deal Rahul Gandhi slammed PM Modi. He said, “A ₹30,000Cr worth gift is given by PM Narendra Modi to Anil Ambani.” Gandhi further added that “Anil Ambani has never built an aircraft in his life. He floated his company a few days before the deal, yet, the deal was taken away from HAL and given to Anil Ambani, who has a ₹45000Cr debt.”

Taking a dig at PM Modi Rahul Gandhi further alleged, “When I put these facts in front of PM Modi, he couldn’t meet my eye. Country’s ‘chowkidar’ turned out to be a thief.” The Congress president also demanded an investigation by Joint Parliamentary Committee in the Rafale Deal.
