PMO directly involved in Rafale negotiations, PM guilty in scam, says Rahul Gandhi

It is an open and shut case, Gandhi declared, citing a report in The Hindu newspaper claiming the Defence ministry raised strong objections to "parallel discussions" conducted by the PMO during the negotiations over the Rs 59,000 crore Rafale deal between India and France.
The government can use the law against everyone, including his brother-in-law Robert Vadra and former finance minister P Chidambaram, but must answer questions on the Rafale deal, he said.
On Thursday, the prime minister also hit back at the Congress over the Rafale issue, alleging that the Congress did not want the Indian Air Force to be strong.
