New Delhi, News24 Bureau, Nov 2: Friday morning Congress president Rahul Gandhi addressed the media in Delhi on Rafale deal. It was yet another set of fresh attacks on the Modi government.
"Dassault invested Rs 284 Crore in the company of Anil Ambani. Anil Ambani bought land with the same money.
"This is clear that Dassault CEO is lying. Why did they invest Rs 284 crore in a loss-making company?" the Congress president asked.
He said that Dassault CEO protecting only 'one man who is running the country'.
"Rafale is an open and shut case. It is simply a PM Modi-Anil Ambani partnership," Gandhi said.
"If an inquiry starts on this, Mr Modi is not going to survive it. Guaranteed. One, because of corruption. Two, because it's very clear who the decision maker was...
"It was Narendra Modi and it was a deal done by Narendra Modi to give Anil Ambani Rs 30,000 crore," he said.
He said that the Dassault CEO had said the reason HAL wasn't given the contract was because Anil Ambani had land.
"Now it turns out that the land that Anil Ambani had was purchased by money given by Dassault," Gandhi said.
