New Delhi, November 2: Congress Rahul Gandhi, while addressing the media in Delhi on the Rafale issue today said that the Rafale issue is an open and shut case. It is simply a PM Narendra Modi-Anil Ambani partnership. He said, "If an inquiry starts on this Mr Narendra Modi is not going to survive it. Guaranteed. One, because of corruption. Two, because it's very clear who the decision maker was...It was Narendra Modi & it was a deal done by Narendra Modi to give Anil Ambani Rs 30,000 crore." What is Rafale Deal?

He further said, "Dassault invested Rs 284 Crore in the company of Anil Ambani. Anil Ambani bought land with the same money. This is clear that Dassault CEO is lying. Why did they invest Rs 284 crore in a loss-making company? The Dassault CEO had said the reason HAL wasn't given the contract was because Anil Ambani had the land. Now it turns out that the land that Anil Ambani had was purchased by money given by Dassault."
