New Delhi: The Congress has launched fresh attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Rafale deal for overlooking objections by the Defence and the Law ministries.

It criticized that such an act has compromised national security.

The opposition party fielded senior leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mallikarjun Kharge and Randeep Surjewala to reiterate its demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe.

Talking to media outside Parliament, the leaders cited objections raised by the Defence and Law ministries.

They demanded that the prime minister and defence minister must disclose full fact before Parliament and a JPC.

Kharge accused the government of shying away from a JPC probe and said only a JPC could dig out the truth.

Reports said that the government has been continuously denying the allegations made by the Congress relating to corruption in the deal.
