Mumbai: BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra took a jibe at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who raised questions over Rafale fighter jet deal with France in his election campaign address.
Sambit Patra said that the Congress was “tired” and Rahul Gandhi “retired”.
“Rahul ji brought the wrong script yesterday. He took out the script from his bag of 2018 and read it out. The same old things. Rahul Gandhi has nothing new to offer. That’s why I say the Congress is tired and Rahul retired. After retirement, he was reading the script from the time when he was active,” Patra told the reporters.
The BJP leader added that the country gave Rahul the answer on Rafale in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
“He confessed nothing happened in 70 years. He needs rest. He came from abroad and he should go for a foreign trip again,” said Patra.
Rahul Gandhi on Sunday while addressing an election rally in Mumbai reiterated that the nation knows there is a theft in the deal of Rafale fighter jet.
“The whole country knows that there was a theft in the Rafale deal. People from the Defence Ministry wrote clearly that the PM is interfering in the deal. That is why there is guilt. The name Rafale hurts. That is why Rajnath Singh ji went to France to collect Rafale jet,” Gandhi said.
