The Parliment session witnessed a clash over Rafale deal, after which the Rahul Gandhi held a press conference reiterating his claims of misconduct by the presenting an 'audio tape', which was later shrugged off by Arun Jaitley who claimed that the Congress president lacks "elementary understanding" while speaking to editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami.
Arun Jaitley said, "He (Rahul Gandhi) has a passionate dislike for truth" accusing him of manufacturing data.
He later notified Rahul Gandhi of the difference between a weaponsised aircraft and that of a simple one, "There is something very elementary, that an Aircraft per se is not a weapon but only a flying vehicle, it is of no use in a war unless it is weaponised."
He called out the Congress president of comparing "two unequals" and lashed out at him for the "lack of wisdom and comprehension"
In a series of tweets, the Finance Minister rebutted Rahul Gandhi's claims that he made during a press conference held after the Lok Sabha session.
Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday used a purported audio clip to allege that Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is "blackmailing" Modi with a file on the Rs 58,000 crore jet deal "lying in his bedroom".
Citing an audio clip of a conversation purportedly of Goa minister Vishwajit Rane, Gandhi said he can be heard clearly as saying that Parrikar told his cabinet during a meeting that all documents relating to the Rafale deal were with him.
Asserting that the audio was authentic, Gandhi indicated there may be more such tapes and dismissed denials by Parrikar and his minister.
