#RafaleDeal: Rahul Gandhi tweets four-questions for Narendra Modi, without number-3

Rahul Gandhi tweets 4 questions for Narendra Modi

Congress President Rahul Gandhi, on Wednesday, tweeted four questions for Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the Rafale deal.

However, the list didn't include question no. 3, which RaGa tweeted separately hours later.

He asked if PM Modi will answer the questions directly in the Lok Sabha on Thursday, or send a 'proxy'.

On Wednesday too, the multi-crore deal was discussed in the Lower House.

The error in the list didn't go unnoticed by social media users, including Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.

She tweeted, "A student who fails in the classroom boasts and challenges from outside."

In what seemed like more of damage control, RaGa tweeted question number 3. He wrote since Lok Sabha speaker 'forbid' him from mentioning 'Goa tape', he held back on that.

RaGa referred to PM Modi's first interview of 2019, calling it 'scripted', and said the entire nation sought answers from him.

Later, RaGa addressed the press and claimed he only needed 20 minutes to debate with PM Modi on Rafale.

He also brushed aside the denial of BJP minister Vishwajit Rane. The Goa minister claimed he didn't speak to anyone on Rafale.

The Congress is firing bullets at BJP on basis of tape which alleges former Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar has Rafale files 'under his bed'.
