Rafale Deal: After ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’, Rahul Gandhi calls PM Modi ‘India’s Commander in Thief’

Rafale Deal: After ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’, Rahul Gandhi calls PM Modi ‘India’s Commander in Thief’

Amid a row of controversies between Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Rafale deal, Gandhi once again sharpened his attack by sharing a short video detailing how the former French President Hollande “had no choice”; “had no words to say about that subject.” Gandhi, while taking to his respective Twitter account, shared the video with the caption reading - "The sad truth about India's Commander in Thief."

Produced by Brut Original, the video narrated the investigation carried out by French News website – Mediapart – revealing that the Modi-led Indian government had suggested the service provider and that the French company Dassault had negotiated with Anil Ambani, which has no or little experience in defence manufacturing. According to the investigation reports, Modi agreed to pay Rs 59,000 crore to the French company Dassault for the purchase of 36 Rafale fighter jets.

Last week while slamming PM Modi over his silence on Rafale deal, Rahul Gandhi, while addressing a Sankalp rally at Sagwara in Dungarpur district, 500 km from Jaipur, had said that “Modiji said he doesn’t want to be the PM of India, but a chowkidaar. But today, in the heart of India and in the hearts of people of Rajasthan, a new slogan, a new voice is rising: ‘Gali gali me shor hai, Hindustan ka chowkidaar chor hai’.”

Rahul demanded that the chowkidaar “explain why Mallya met the Finance Minister before escaping. He should explain why excess money was paid in the Rafale deal. He should explain why Anil Ambani accompanied him to France.”

Madhya Pradesh: Energy Minister Paras Jain threatens engineer of suspension

MP: Energy Minister Paras Jain threatens the engineer of suspension

Madhya Pradesh minister of Energy and New and Renewable Energy Paras Chandra Jain lost his cool and threatened to suspend the Housing Board engineer on Sunday. Jain was participating in Ayushman Bharat Scheme program in Ujjain.

On Sunday energy minister Jain reached the district hospital to participate in the Ayushman Bharat Yojna and he found that hospital floor tiles are broken. He became angry at this and called for the construction company engineer of the housing board.

A day earlier the same engineer has done the ‘Bhoomi Poojan’ of Rs 8 crore project, without inviting any public representative. This adds to his fury and he lost his cool. The minister was angry at the laid-back response of the engineer for not inviting him for the ‘Bhoomi Poojan’ in a poll-bound state where the election is due.

Jain threatened the engineer to his lungs and warned him of a possible suspension.
