Rafale deal: Rahul Gandhi lost his balance due to elections, says MJ Akbar

Minister of State (MoS) for External Affairs MJ Akbar took a jibe at Congress president Rahul Gandhi and said that he has lost his balance due to elections as what all he is saying about Rafale deal is lies. Speaking on the issue, Akbar said, "You cannot corner anyone with lies. For that, you need truth. Rahul Gandhi and his family is stuck in Bofors scam for so many years because there was truth in it. Sometimes I feel he has lost his balance due to elections. They say that the deal between Dassault and Reliance took place a few days before signing, which is absolutely untrue. Memorandum of Understanding took place when UPA was in power in 2012."
