Rahul should apologise: Amit Shah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah hailing the Supreme Court ruling in Rafale deal as victory of truth, demanded an apology from opposition leader Rahul Gandhi, who in turn sought a JPC as well as a probe into the multi-billion aircraft deal, saying Justice K M Joseph has left open a "huge door" for investigation.

Soon after the top court dismissed pleas seeking a review of its earlier order which had quashed demand for a probe in the fighter aircraft deal, the BJP fielded its top ministers and party leaders to launch an all-out attack on the Congress and Gandhi, evoking a sharp reaction from the opposition party, which claimed that the  judgment is not a clean chit for the government.

The Congress had used Modi government's purchase of 36 Rafale jets from French aerospace major Dassault Aviation for the IAF at a cost of Rs 59,000 crore as one of the major issues in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, combining it with its 'ChowkidaarChorHai' slogan.
