Union Minister Smriti Irani has taken a dig at Congress President Rahul Gandhi accusing him of telling “more lies” on the matter after he called Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharama a “liar”,
and alleged that Gandhi’s brother-in-law Robert Vadra had a plush 1.9 million pound house in London, which is under the scanner of Enforcement Directorate.
Speaking during a press conference, Irani said even after the Defence Minister placed all the facts in Parliament, it took Rahul Gandhi “48 hours to wake up, only to spread more lies”.
Raising issue of Gandhi’s brother-in-law Robert Vadra, Irani said the Congress’ ‘rashtriya damaad (national son-in-law)’ made headlines on Saturday when the Enforcement Directorate, while seeking non-bailable warrants for Vadra’s personal assistant Manoj Arora, informed a Delhi court that the plush house in London which is under the scanner belongs to Vadra.
The union minister also mentioned the Enforcement Directorate allegation that Vadra has close relations with controversial defence consultant Sanjay Bhandari who is now hiding in London.
