New Delhi: Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for allegedly helping industrialist Anil Ambani through the Rafale defence deal, Congress president Rahul Gandhi has said Modi’s ‘karma’ would catch up with him soon.
When questioned about the deal during an interview, Modi said, “Is there no trust in the Supreme Court, CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General) and the French government? Would you not even have faith in what the Indian government said in Parliament?”
Gandhi, who uploaded a portion of the interview, wrote on Twitter, “Truth is a powerful thing. I challenge you to a debate on corruption.”
You can run Mr Modi but you can’t hide. Your karma is about to catch up with you. The country can hear it in your voice. Truth is a powerful thing. I challenge you to a debate on corruption. pic.twitter.com/cHhRa0mMeH— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) 7 April 2019
On Thursday, while addressing a rally in Nagpur, Gandhi had said corruption in the deal would be investigated if his party came to power at the Centre after the Lok Sabha election.
Claiming that the then defence minister, Manohar Parrikar, was aware of the illegalities, the Congress president said Modi had changed the fighter jet purchase deal, resulting in price increase.
"I am telling you inquiry will be initiated after election...and the other chowkidar will be in jail," he said, referring to the Prime Minister's exhortation to everybody to become a 'chowkidar'.
