New Delhi, November 14
Hitting hard at Rahul Gandhi after the Supreme Court gave a clean chit to the government on the Rafale deal, BJP working president JP Nadda said the Congress leader had tried to mislead the country on the issue and should now apologise.
The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed the review petitions against its verdict in the Rafale deal on grounds that they lacked merit, reiterating its clean chit to the Modi government in the fighter jet agreement with French firm Dassault Aviation.
Asserting that truth had prevailed, Nadda said, “From road to Parliament, Rahul Gandhi and his party tried hard to mislead the country on the issue but truth prevailed. I wish Rahul would be in country and should apologise to the nation.”
BJP leaders also took a dig at the former Congress president after the apex court asked him to be careful in future while closing a plea for contempt case against him for wrongly attributing certain comments on the Rafale deal to it.
“SC rejects review petitions on Rafale deal & raps Rahul Gandhi & asks him to be careful in future. Huge victory for Narendra Modi-led government,” BJP general secretary (organisation) BL Santhosh tweeted.
Echoing similar sentiments, BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said truth had triumphed and that it is a huge victory for the Modi government. PTI
