Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Commander in thief’ and Jet-lie jibe on Rafale controversy, agriculture minister mocked for speaking on defence deal


Continuing his attack on the central government over the alleged corruption and corny capitalism, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘Commander in thief.’

He posted a video of a French journalist explaining how Hollande’s comments had caused plenty of trouble for the Modi government. While posting the video, Rahul wrote, “The sad truth about India’s Commander in Thief.”

This followed his another tweet, while addressing Finance Minister Arun Jaitley as ‘Jet-lie.’ He wrote, “Mr Jetlie’s speciality is his ability to spin “2 truths”, or lies, with fake self righteousness & indignation to defend the indefensible. It’s high time he, the RM & our PM stop lying and call a JPC to establish the full, uncorrupted truth about the #RafaleScam.”

Meanwhile, the central government deputed its agriculture minister, Gajendra Shekhawat, to defend its questionable defence deal. This did not go down with social media users, who poked fun at the government by posting hilarious tweets.

The Rafale expose, which was first published by Janta Ka Reporter in its three-part series, last year has become top political controversy after former French President Francois Hollande sensationally revealed that the Modi government had suggested the name of Anil Ambani as the Indian offset partner.
