Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday expressed happiness over the Supreme Court verdict to reinstate Alok Verma as CBI Director, who he claimed was to start detailed probe into the Rafale deal. The Congress scion also asserted that nothing can save PM Modi from Rafale.

Addressing the  media shortly after the reinstatement of Verma, Rahul Gandhi said; "CBI chief (Verma) was removed because he wanted to start a probe into the Rafale (deal). Now we have some justice, let's see what happens".

"Nothing is going to save the Prime Minister from Rafale...nothing. 

"It is pretty clear that the Prime Minister has personally helped his crony get Rs 30,000 crore. I have a simple question. When Modi bypassed the Rafale deal, did the Indian Air Force, did the Defence Ministry raise an objection? I am expecting and ‘yes' or ‘no' answer. The Defence Minister is not able to give it, neither the Prime Minister," said Gandhi. 

The Congress President also said the country will surely get to know about how Modi helped his friend get Rs 30,000 crore of people's money.

"The nation is going to 100 per cent know that Modi had taken Rs 30,000 crore of people's money and given to his friend. Without a shadow of doubt, the nation will get to know this," added Gandhi, who has called the Rafale deal the country's "biggest defence scam".

Earlier in the day, the apex court reinstated Alok Verma, setting aside the Centre's decision to divest him of his powers. However, the top court restrained him from taking any major policy decision till the CVC probe  into the corruption charges against him is over.
