Congress President Rahul Gandhi tore into the Narendra Modi government over the Rafale deal during his tour in parliamentary constituency Amethi. Saying that in the coming months, his party will expose how every initiative under the present government has been an act of theft, Rahul said the "fun has just begun".

Gandhi alleged that the country's "chowkidar", Narendra Modi, had snatched money away from the poor and martyrs and handed it over to industrialist Anil Ambani.

The Congress chief arrived in Amethi for a two-day visit on Monday, the first after his Kailash Mansarovar pilgrimage, and said the people of the country want to know the amount involved in the Rafale deal.

He also claimed that based on former French President Hollande’s interview, it was clear that the Modi government had handed the contract to Anil Ambani.

“HAL has been making aircrafts of different kinds like the Jaguar, Sukhoi, MiG for over 70 years. Anil Ambani hasn’t made a single aircraft in his life. He has a debt of Rs 45,000 crores which he has not settled with the Indian banks. The company which got the Rafale deal was founded 10 days before getting the contract.”

Rahul Gandhi also claimed that the Modi government has gone back on election promises like providing employment and sending money in bank accounts of the people.

Will Bring Justice to Those Who Stole from Martyrs

To every Air Force officer and jawan who has served India. To the family of every martyred Indian fighter pilot. To every person who ever worked for HAL. We hear your pain. We understand how you feel. We will bring to justice all those who dishonoured and stole from you.
Rahul Gandhi, Congress President

On Tuesday, Rahul Gandhi sent out an emotional tweet honouring the Air Force and the workers of HAL, saying that they (the Congress) will bring justice to those who have stolen from our soldiers. The tweet is being seen as Gandhi’s attempt to give an emotional angle to his badgering of the Modi government’s dealing with the purchase of Rafale jets from France.

Gandhi had earlier said the “PM has dishonoured the blood of our soldiers” when former French President Francois Hollande’s statement on the Rafale deal surfaced, saying that Anil Ambani’s Reliance was pitched as a local partner by the Indian government.
