Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given Rs 30,000 crore to businessman Anil Ambani. “The reality is that the prime minister is corrupt,” Gandhi said, adding that Defence Minister is in France amid the controversy. “Nirmala Sitharaman is in France, what’s the emergency?” he said. “There’s is clear-cut case of corruption against the prime minister of India,” Gandhi said.
“The company (Dassault), who has got the contract, it’s number two has said that the prime minister is corrupt, he added.
“Earlier, the former French President revealed that Indian PM had told them that Reliance should get a deal. Now a senior official of Rafale has said the same. It is a clear cut case of corruption,” Gandhi said.
Further asked to comment on Dassault Aviation’s statement which favoured the ruling dispensation’s version, Gandhi said that the company will speak as instructed by the Modi government.
“Dassault is sitting on a huge contract… Dassault will say what the Indian government wants it to say… their internal document clearly stated that PM has said without this compensation the deal will not be done,” the Congress chief said.
