The Congress on Thursday rejected BJP’s criticism on the Supreme Court verdict on Rafale and sought a probe into the jet purchase from France.

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi tweeted after the verdict and sought a joint parliamentary committee probe into the deal.

The Congress said the Supreme Court expressed limitations in probing the deal and also observed that nothing stops the police to investigate a cognisable offense.

Rahul Gandhi tweeted today, “Justice Joseph of the Supreme Court has opened a huge door into investigation of the RAFALE scam. An investigation must now begin in full earnest. A Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) must also be set up to probe this scam. #BJPLiesOnRafale.”

The Congress made it clear that it would raise the matter in the upcoming winter session of Parliament. Congress media head Randeep Surjewala meanwhile said the party stood vindicated on its stand in the matter and the court had left a room open for a probe.

“It is now up to the government to take this investigation into Rafale forward,” Surjewala said.
