“Chowkidaar Is Chor, Hence Proved”: Rahul Gandhi’s Rafale Retort To PM


NEW DELHI: Congress chief Rahul Gandhi today welcomed the investigative report by The Hindu, which has accessed a defence ministry note that raised objections to the involvement Prime Minister’s Office in the Rafale deal with France. The report conclusively establishes the PMO was involved in the deal and it makes the Supreme Court judgment on Rafale questionable since “information was withheld from the court,” Mr Gandhi said. .
“Who do you think he’s doing parallel negotiations for? Not for you and me? It is for Anil Ambani… this proves that Chowkidaar is a thief,” Mr Gandhi said in an impromptu press conference.

The Congress chief has repeatedly contended that the defence ministry has raised objections to the involvement of the Prime Minister’s Office in the deal. His questions have been largely ignored by the government.

Yesterday in Parliament, the Prime Minister ripped into the Congress over its allegations on Rafale deal.

“I wondered why they speak lies on Rafale with such confidence. Then I realised because they know in all their years in power there hasn’t been a single honest defence deal. Some mama, some chacha kept coming in,” he said.
