Congress president Rahul Gandhi today asserted that no one can save Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Rafale investigation. Further, he said that the entire nation will know “without a shadow of doubt” that he has taken Rs 30,000 crore of people’s money and given it to his “friend” Anil Ambani, he said on a day the Supreme Court reinstated CBI Director Alok Verma.
It may be recalled that shortly after Verma was sent on leave late in October, Gandhi had accused Modi of allegedly removing him in an attempt to stop the officer from investigating the Rafale “scam”. The party has often pressed the charge against the government since. It had also said that divesting Verma of his statutory powers abruptly — amid a feud with his deputy Rakesh Asthana — was illegal.
Speaking to reporters outside Parliament, Gandhi said the CBI chief was “ousted” at 1 AM as he was about to begin an investigation into the Rafale jet agreement and Prime Minister Modi and his government cannot run away from a probe into the deal.
“They cannot run away from Rafale, it is impossible. Modi ji ran away from a debate. He should have discussed with us the Rafale issue, in the people’s court. No one can save them from Rafale, as Rafale is the truth. No one can run away from the truth,” he added.
