Hardly a challenge to catch Rahul Gandhi lying -- These were the first few words used by Col. Rajyavardhan Rathore, MoS Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, in response to MoS External Affairs General VK Singh's challenge to expose the lies of the Congress President.
Col. Rathore, who was the brains behind the #FitnessChallenge and #5MinuteAur challenges which took the country by storm, accepted and nailed the c given to him by his fellow minister.
The MoS Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports chose to expose Rahul Gandhi's lie on the offset contract in the Rafale deal using a video of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley speaking in the Parliament on this matter.
"Here's when he claimed Rafale offsets of 1.3 L crores,when deal itself is 58k crores!" part of his tweet read.
He then tagged his fellow party leaders Piyush Goyal, Manoj Tiwari and Kiren Rijiju and challenged them to highlight the lies peddled by the Congress chief.
Referring to the headline which read: Rahul Gandhi said in Ranchi, 'name one speech where I said a lie', former army chief General VK Singh had initiated the #RahulGandhiLieChallenge in order to expose the lies of the Congress president.
The Congress president has been trying to build a narrative that there was "corruption" in the Rafale deal as part of his election campaign against the BJP. Over and over again, he has been making efforts to suggest that PM Modi had benefited his 'friend' Anil Ambani to a tune of Rs 30,000 crores by awarding his company the offset partnership in the Rafale deal.
His allegations have been never-ending even after they were dismissed on a number of occasions, not only by the Modi government and the Defence ministry officials but also by Dassault and its officials.
