Earlier on Monday, while addressing a social media workers of the Congress in Amethi, Gandhi had said,”The man (Prime Minister Modi), who came to remove corruption, has himself given Rs 30,000 crore to Anil Ambani. The fun has just begun, things are set to turn more interesting. In the next 2-3 months you will have fun after we will show you Narendra Modi’s work – Rafale, Vijay Mallya, Lalit Modi, Demonetisation, Gabbar Singh Tax. All of it is theft. One by one, we will show that Narendra Modi ji is not a gatekeeper, but a burglar.” Also Read - 'Unlike UP...': Rahul Gandhi Hits Out At BJP Over 'Gandhis Don't Care' Comment
The interaction was held at the Forest Department guest house in Amethi and was closed to the media. However, video of Rahul Gandhi’s jibe at Narendra Modi was recorded by some attendees and was shared with local reporters.
In a cryptic tweet dated August 30, Rahul Gandhi warned of “some big bunker buster bombs in the next couple of weeks” with regard to the fighter-jet deal. Days later, former French president François Hollande, in an interview to a French media house, claimed that the French government had no other option but to choose Reliance Defence as an Offset partner for Dassault Aviation.
However, Hollande later backtracked in another interview and said only Dassault Aviation can comment on why Reliance Defence was chosen as the Offset partner
