Today, Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi said if his party comes to power in the state in 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, a criminal probe will be introduced into the Rafale fighter jets deal and convict will be punished.

Addressing the source outside the Parliament before the government’s reply, Mr. Gandhi has urged Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to reply to the questions raised by Congress over multi-million dollar fighter jets deal.

He further alleged Prime Minister Narendra Modi of running away from the debate and said that the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley should reply to questions, which were raised by Congress instead of only abusing the Congress Chief.
