The BJP on Saturday condemned as “shameful and irresponsible” Congress chief Rahul Gandhi remarks against Narendra Modi over the Rafale deal, saying no president of any party has ever used such language against a prime minister.

Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad hit back at Gandhi after the Congress president alleged that there was “clear-cut” corruption in the Rafale deal and asked the prime minister to clear his position on the issue.

He also ruled out a joint parliamentary committee probe saying it cannot be done to satisfy the ego of an “ill-informed leader”.

Prasad accused Gandhi of “playing into the hands of Pakistan and China” by seeking the details of the Rafale fighter jets.
