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.
Congress and @RahulGandhi’s pain on demonetisation is understandable. A huge blow has been dealt to generations of their looted wealth! No wonder the gramophone is only stuck on demonetisation, ignoring the multiple benefits highlighted by the Union Finance Minister.— BJP (@BJP4India) August 30, 2018
"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!”
