Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday came out all guns blazing at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The entire country is talking about the thefts done by the prime minister, he said.

He once again attacked the Centre on the Rafale deal.

"There were parallel negotiations going on in the deal. PM Modi wanted to put Rs 30,000 crore in the pocket of Anil Ambani," Gandhi said.  

"If PM is not guilty why he is afraid of the investigation?" Gandhi questioned. 

In a separate question on alliance, Gandhi said, "Overall our alliances are on track, in Delhi the party unit unanimously said no to an alliance."

On Tuesday, Congress president tweeted, "There is now enough evidence to prosecute the PM in the #RafaleScam. The trail of corruption begins & ends with him. That crucial Rafale files incriminating him are now reported “stolen” by the Govt, is destruction of evidence & an obvious coverup."

Hitting back, Union Minister RS Prasad said, reported ANI, "Totally condemn the blatant lies of Rahul Gandhi. He doesn't believe the Indian Air Force, he doesn't believe the SC, doesn't believe the CAG. Does he want to believe Pakistan? He is inadvertently or deliberately playing into hands of Rafale competitors."

As the dates for the Lok Sabha elections 2019 are approaching, Congress party is intensifying its attack on the ruling party.
