Patna: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar on Friday hit out at Rahul Gandhi for seeking details of the Rafale fighter aircraft deal and alleged that the Congress President wants to pass them on to Pakistan and China.

“Why does Rahul need information on the deal? For passing on the same to China and Pakistan,” he told mediapersons.

The government has decided against making the break-up of the nearly Rs 58,000 crore Rafale deal public and said it could “compromise national security”.

Sushil Modi further remarked in a tweet "there are lots of similarities between Rahul Gandhi (Congress president) and Tejashwi Yadav. Both have been beneficiaries of dynasty politics and have miserably failed in playing the role of responsible opposition leaders".

"Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, both the Constitution and the country's borders are fully secure. You cannot take out nyay yatra while sitting in the lap of the party which had brought Emergency", the senior BJP leader said in an obvious dig at the RJD's alliance with the Congress.

"One had torn a copy of an ordinance brought by his own government, insulting his own Prime Minister. The other has made it a habit to speak rubbish about a Chief Minister who is of his father's age", he added.

Deputy Chief Minister Modi also lambasted RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav for revealing the identity of an eight-year-old girl who was found murdered in Gaya district earlier this week after suspected sexual assault.

On a day when Yadav began a state-wide "Samvidhan bachao nyay yatra"(justice march for saving the Constitution), Sushil tweeted "those who have thrown law and basic decency to the wind by making public the identity of a victim of sexual assault, are enacting the farce of saving the Constitution".

Yadav has, in a series of tweets over the past few days, criticised Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for failing to meet the family member of the girl despite being in Gaya town on February 7, the very day her body was found a day after she went missing.

In one of the tweets, Yadav had also posted a photograph of the girl beside disclosing her name.

The person suspected of having killed the girl after sexual assault, besides abducting two boys who were found with injury marks in the city on the same day, has been arrested.
