PM Narendra Modi during his rally in Dehradun, Uttarakhand raised Republic Media Network's report on the dealings between Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi with NSEL scam accused Jignesh Shah and his company FTIL. The Gandhi siblings had dealings with Shah when he was being probed by investigating agencies during the UPA regime.
PM Modi during the speech also slammed the Congress for having been accused in several scams during its 55-year rule in the country.
"Whether it be CWG, loan-waiver scam, land scams, drought scam, Army, Navy, Air Force - there is nothing that has escaped them. And in this, the Naamdar family's name is on top. You've just seen in the media that big farmhouses were involved in scams. They didn't even leave the country's armed forces. It's hard to find a defence deal where there's no mention of Congress commission," he said.
Republic Media Network's newsbreak revealed in two parts the business dealings between the Gandhi Vadra family and persons and entities accused in 2G scam and NSEL scam raising questions of propriety.
The first newsbreak raised questions over dealings between the current Congress president and one of the 2G scam's main-accused Sanjay Chandra and his company Unitech from the time that the scam was being probed.
The second newsbreak revealed through documents that Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra Gandhi had conducted business transactions with one of Jignesh Shah's companies which involved a sprawling farmhouse owned jointly by the Gandhi siblings. Both Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra recieved 407% of declared property value as 'deposit' and an inordinate figure of monthly rent for their property by Shah's company.

When the Congress leaders were asked about the Republic Media Network's newsbreak on the Gandhi-Vadra family's dealings with alleged scamsters from the UPA era, they ducked the question using whataboutery.
Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad deflected a question on the report by bringing up the Rafale deal.
"The Congress leader does not do business dealings with anyone. Prime Minister and his President are ones who do that, who take business leaders on flights and hold meetings with French ambassadors and give them deals worth Rs 30000 crore," he said.
