The slugfest over Rafale deal continued both within Parliament and outside and on Monday both the ruling BJP and the principal opposition Congress sought to move privilege motion against Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi respectively.
On the part of the ruling dispensation, party chief whip in Lok Sabha Anurag Thakur and his colleagues Nishikant Dubey, Sanjaj Jaiswal and Prahlad Singh Patel petitioned Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan against Congress president for his comments in the House on Rafale deal.”Four of us want action against Mr Gandhi for misleading the House and the country,” Mr Dubey told UNI.

The Congress member from Gurdaspur in Punjab Sunil Jakhar also made a petition to the Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Majahan praying for a privilege motion against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for what he said “deliberately misleading the Supreme Court and Parliament” in connection with the Rafale fighter jet deal.

In his petition, a copy of which was made available here, Mr Jakhar alleged that there was “serious miss representation of vital, significant facts” to the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, it is still not clear who is misleading, or who is leading the country.

The Congress Party  gave notice on the breach of the privilege in Rajya Sabha on Rafale issue and demanded an explanation from the Government on why it provided a ‘wrong’ information on Rafale deal.

The Leader of Opposition in the Upper House Gulam Nabi Azad has sent notice to the Rajya Sabha.

On the commencement of the Rajya Sabha proceedings on Monday, the Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu was giving briefing about various notices and proposals given by the members.

Mr Azad said that he had sent a notice on the breach of privilege as the government mislead the country and the Supreme Court as well on Raphael deal case.

Replying to Mr Azad, the Chairman Naidu said that since this issue is sub judice before the Supreme Court, therefore, no decision has been taken on the notice.
