Just 6 hours left to set up Rafale JPC: Rahul Gandhi reminds Arun Jaitely

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday reminded Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitely that less than six hours were left to set up a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to probe the Rafale deal.

The Congress chief's attack comes after Arun Jaitley termed the Congress' charges on the defence deal a "complete falsehood" in his blogpost.

Rahul Gandhi said: "Young India is waiting. I hope you're busy convincing (Prime Minister Narendra) Modiji and Anil Ambaniji about why they should listen to you and approve this (JPC)!" 

On Wednesday, the Congress President demanded that the Centre should form a JPC to probe the 'Great Rafale Robbery' and gave Jaitley 24 hours to 'check and revert' on the same.
