New Delhi: The Congress on Monday raised the issue of alleged scam in the Rafale deal in the Lok Sabha.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh shot back saying that repeating a lie would not make it a truth.
During the Zero Hour party members trooped into the Well of the house displaying placards and shouting slogans on the matter.
Senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge said there has been a scam in the deal and asked why the government was not disclosing the price of jets. He demanded a JPC probe into the issue amid loud protests from BJP members.
Members from the AIADMK and the TDP engaged in sloganeering in the Well as they sought to raise various other issues. While the AIADMK demanded that construction of a dam across the Cauvery river should be stopped, the TDP continued to seek special status for Andhra Pradesh.
