The BJP on Saturday condemned as “shameful and irresponsible” Congress chief Rahul Gandhi remarks against P M Narendra Modi over the Rafale deal, saying no president of any party has ever used such language against a prime minister.
Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad hit back at Gandhi after the Congress president alleged that there was “clear-cut” corruption in the Rafale deal and asked the prime minister to clear his position on the issue.
He also ruled out a joint parliamentary committee probe saying it cannot be done to satisfy the ego of an “ill-informed leader”.
Prasad accused Gandhi of “playing into the hands of Pakistan and China” by seeking the details of the Rafale fighter jets.
