Live updates: ‘PM Modi acting like a spy, giving out defence info,’ says Rahul Gandhi

Congress president Rahul Gandhi will be addressing a special conference on Rafale deal on Friday.

“Everyday there are new revelations about RAFALE that make it clear that the PM helped his friend Anil Ambani, steal 30,000 Cr of your money,” tweeted the Congress chief.

On Monday, taking a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi said he used to boast about his “56-inch chest”, but the “hollowness” of his claims is now coming out in the open.

The Central government on Monday rejected allegation of “conflict of interest” levied by the Congress party against CAG Rajiv Mehrishi over the audit agency’s proposed report on the Rafale deal, saying he never dealt with expenditure proposals from the Ministry of Defence as Finance Secretary.

The development comes a day after the Congress party accused Mehrishi of committing “gross impropriety” by auditing the Rafale deal, saying as the Finance Secretary he was involved in the deal announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in April 2015.
