Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, General Secretary of East Uttar Pradesh and Rahul Gandhi stood up to the allegation against Robert Vadra. In his unprepared press conference today following an investigative report on the Rafale jet deal, he challenged the government to investigate all the corruption deals - with a rider.
"You do whatever inquiry and investigation you want...investigate Chidambaram and Vadra, but also investigate Rafale," Mr Gandhi said.
Asked by a reporter about PM Modi's comment that the Congress is rattled because of the corruption allegations against them, Gandhi replied instantly asking if he looked rattled to him? He further asked the reporter to take a good look at the Prime Minister and take a good look at him and then figure out who is rattled.
