Congress President Rahul Gandhi accuses Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman of "lying" that procurement orders worth Rs 1 lakh crore was provided to HAL, appealing the aerospace major has not received any money.
Rahul Gandhi on his Twitter stated that “When you tell one lie, you need to keep spinning out more lies, to cover up the first one. In her eagerness to defend the PM's Rafale lie, the RM lied to Parliament. Tomorrow, RM must place before Parliament documents showing 1 Lakh crore of Govt orders to HAL.”
Rahul further dared Defense Minister to place documents before the Parliament on Monday, 7 January, showing the government the order of 1 Lakh crores to HAL, adding that she must "resign" if she fails to do.
