Once again on Thursday Congress president Rahul Gandhi attacked Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over Rafale deal.

“Dear Mr. Jaitley, I guess your boss refused to hold a Joint Parliamentary Committee on the GREAT RAFALE ROBBERY? Too much to hide, too scared to face the people, I suppose...,” Gandhi scion tweeted. 

However, BJP was quick to respond.

"The fictitious and frustrated rants by @RahulGandhi on Rafale are the product of a deep-rotted angst on not getting a chance to make merry like his family did in Bofors and Augusta deals. People are already looking at @RahulGandhi’s comedy and saying Ra(hul)-Fail!" " tweeted the saffron party.

"The Congress President Shri @RahulGandhi is in a state of delusion as well as denial. Take any issue, he is clueless on key facts or the situation on the ground. He also needs better script-writers considering he has been harping on the same thing for the last several years now," party said.

On Wednesday, BJP president Amit Shah launched a scathing attack on Gandhi after he tried to corner Jaitley over the Rafale issue. Shah said “nation’s IQ is higher than yours”. 

​“Why wait 24 hours when you already have your JPC-Jhoothi Party Congress. Your lies to fool the nation are self-evident when Rafale price you quote vary in Delhi, Karnataka, Raipur, Hyderabad, Jaipur & Parliament. But the nation's IQ is higher than yours!” tweeted Shah on Wednesday.

Congress president had tweeted, “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!”
