Kalaburagi : Congress President Rahul Gandhi was addressing an election rally in Kalaburagi on Monday, his first public meeting after the Lok Sabha elections was declared. Rahul unleashed a bitter attack against by repeatedly stating that Mr. Modi had launched the campaign after his “theft” was caught. He also alleged that the Prime Minister acted as “Chowkidar” (Watchman) of the big businessmen and not of the poor countrymen.
“He [Mr. Modi] was the watchman for Anil Ambani, Mehul Choksi, Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi, Vijay Mallya. The chowkidar handed over India’s six airports to Adani on the very same day the Pulwama attack had happened. Rafale deal was the biggest defence deal in the world.
The UPA government had clearly said that the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited [HAL] would get the contract. It had negotiated and fixed 526 crores for a fighter jet. When Chowkidar became the Prime Minister, the first task he did was visiting France along with Anil Ambani and changing the entire contract to benefit Mr. Ambani.
The aircraft worth 526 crore was bought for 1600 and the contract was given to Mr. Ambani… who had never manufactured a flight. Chowkidar has snatched your jobs and gave your 30,000 crores to Ambani,” he said.
Directly referring to the series of investigative reports published in The Hindu on Rafale deal, the Congress president said the reports clearly exposed that the Prime Minister had conducted parallel negotiations with France on Rafale deal.
