Rahul Gandhi acting as lobbyist for foreign firms: BJP


The BJP Tuesday accused Rahul Gandhi of working as a “lobbyist” for foreign firms and asserted that the e-mail he cited to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi referred to some chopper deal and not the purchase of Rafale fighter jet as the Congress president claimed.

After Gandhi accused Modi of “treason” claiming that businessman Anil Ambani was aware in advance of the Rafale deal India and France had signed in 2015, senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad dismissed his charges as “height of shamelessness and irresponsibility” and dubbed him a “lying machine”.
