Rahul alleged that the PM's argument of better pricing and faster delivery of the jets to defend the deal has been "demolished".

However, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh rubbished the demand and accused the opposition party of misleading people by repeatedly raking up the Rafale fighter jet deal issue. Singh said that "The issue has been discussed in detail in the House and the Supreme Court has also put the matter to rest. The Congress has been raking it up every now and then. But the truth will remain. Politics is not done by misleading people. A person should have the guts to speak the truth,".

 

On Tuesday Congress had staged a walkout from the Lok Sabha after the government rejected its demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the Rafale fighter jet deal. Leader of the single largest party in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said if Prime Minister Narendra Modi should come forth and constitute a JPC for a detailed inquiry into the deal if the government is not scared of hiding facts. "The Prime Minister does not have the courage. You constitute a JPC, we will prove the misdeeds in the deal," he said.
