New Delhi: Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had acted as a middleman of Anil Ambani in the Rafale fighter jet deal.
Gandhi cited an e-mail to claim the tycoon had the knowledge of the MoU before India and France signed it.
The Congress president alleged at presser that: “This is treason. He (Modi) is doing what spies do.”
He said Ambani had met the French defence minister days before the signing of the deal during Modi’s visit to France in 2015.
Gandhi quoted from an e-mail written by an Airbus executive to a French official.
The Congress president also rejected the Comptroller and Auditor General report on the Rafale deal rubbishing it as “Chowkidar Auditor General” report.
