Rahul Gandhi is working as a lobbyist for aircraft companies: Ravi Shankar Prasad

‘Rahul Gandhi is working as a lobbyist for competitive aircraft supplier companies’ said Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad while launching a scathing attack on the Congress president on Tuesday.

Reacting to allegations levied by Gandhi scion during an earlier press conference, Prasad said: “His statements are completely irresponsible. Someone who is already on bail along with his mother must not teach us. We just want to ask him as to how he got access to air-bus email. AirBus is already being investigated because of Air force supply in previous government.”

“He is playing with the national security and is working as a lobbyist for foreign companies. But we will never submit to such false campaign. We will strengthen the air force,” added Prasad.

Earlier in the day, Congress President Rahul Gandhi used a fresh media report to allege that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had acted as a “middleman” for industrialist Anil Ambani in the Rafale fighter deal and accused him of violating the Official Secrets Act (OSA) and indulging in “treason” for which “action must be initiated”.
