New Delhi, Aug 29: Responding to claims by Finance Minister Arun jaitley that Rahul Gandhi and others have been inconsistent about the price of the Rafale fighter jets, the Congress president on Wednesday said that he was still waiting for response to demand for probe by a Joint Parliamentary committee into the Rafale deal.
Taking to social media, Mr Gandhi said, ''Mr Jaitley, thanks for bringing the nation’s attention back to the GREAT #RAFALE ROBBERY! How about a Joint Parliamentary Committee to sort it out? Problem is, your Supreme Leader is protecting his friend, so this may be inconvenient. Do check & revert in 24 hrs. We’re waiting!''
Earlier, countering persistent attack on the government on Rafale aircraft deal, the Union Finance Minister on Wednesday posed as many as 15 questions to the principal opposition party and wanted to know if 'delay' by the UPA regime on the matter did 'seriously compromise national security'.
Jaitley, in a blog on Facebook, said while Congress party has been alleging about 'escalated price' as finalised by the NDA government, at the same time Congress president Rahul Gandhi and others have been inconsistent about the price itself. (UNI)
