'Lie Hard': Rahul indulging in cheap barbs, says BJP

On Thursday, a special CBI court in Delhi had acquitted all the accused in the 2G spectrum scam, an alleged corruption scandal which is said to be one of the reasons for the defeat of the UPA-II, led by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, in 2014.

Rahul had on Friday chaired a meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), his first after taking over as Congress president. On the 2G verdict, he said, "I think 2G has been a vindication (of our party's stand).Everyone knows about 2G and the truth has come before all of you". Gandhi also asked why Modi was "silent" on the allegations made by the Opposition over Rafale deal and financial irregularities of a firm linked to BJP chief Amit Shah's son Jay.

The party workers' meet will be held at Gujarat University Convention Hall at GNBC ground in Ahmedabad.




The Congress got its highest number of seats in Gujarat assembly polls in the last 27 years but party lost power in Himachal Pradesh. "Our party played a very positive role in keeping everybody together", he added. He had alleged that whether it was Mr Modi's poll promise of putting "15 lakh each in peoples" bank accounts, the 2G spectrum case or Mr Modi's development model, "one by one the lies are coming out". "3-4 months ago, people were questioning if the Congress could even contest elections in Gujarat", the Congress leader said. We saw the results. "The then CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General) Vinod Rai had announced that the government had suffered a loss of ₹1,76,000 crore", he said. "Shouldn't they apologise to the nation?"

With Congress facing stiff electoral challenges, the CWC urged Rahul Gandhi to energise the party organisation at the earliest, while he also mentioned the challenges for the party in the assembly polls next year.

"One thing very clearly emerges that even all the other CAG reports, which were tabled during the tenure of Vinod Rai were figments of imagination, were specifically created to vitiate the atmosphere and they need to be consigned to the dustbin of history", he said. "All lies, the truth of the 2G is out there now", he told reporters after the meeting.
