New Delhi: The BJP on Thursday launched a scathing attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi after the Supreme Court gave a clean chit to the government on the Rafale deal and said he lied in Parliament and stooped to the shameful extent of misquoting the top court deliberately.
Addressing a press conference at the party office here, senior BJP leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the Congress and in particular, its former president Gandhi must apologise to the country.
Hailing the Supreme Court’s order on the Rafale deal as a victory of the country’s national security, Prasad said, “It is recognition of the honest decision-making process of the Narendra Modi government…Satayamave Jayate.
Hitting at Gandhi and his family, he said, “People having saga of corruption from Jeep scandal to Bofors to Submarine to Augusta Westland, were undertaking a political shot.”
“Raising false allegations on the Rafale deal was the lowest point of political discourse that he stooped to the shameful extent of misquoting the supreme court deliberately,” Prasad said.
