New Delhi:

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the alleged “loss to the public exchequer" in Rafale fighter aircraft agreement.

“I answer all your questions, whatever you ask me. Why don’t you question Prime Minister Modi on the Rafale deal,” Rahul asked media.

Rahul Gandhi was interacting with media after the the meeting of the newly launched All India Un-organised Workers Congress (AIUWC).

Earleir in the week, the Congress party has alleged Modi government of compromising national interests and security in the new Rafale deal.

The Congress’ communications department head Randeep Surjewala alleged that the Rafale aircrafts were being purchased at much higher rates than what was decided under the previous UPA government.

BJP has rubbished the allegations of Congress and said the party is trying to “divert attention” from the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scandal in which some of its leaders are being questioned.
