New Delhi/Nagpur :6/4:(odiannews):A day after Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi said in Gondia that Opposition leaders will be in Delhi’s Tihar jail after the polls, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that all those who “claim to be chowkidars will find themselves in jail after the elections”.

At a massive election rally in Nagpur on Thursday evening, Gandhi said if the Congress and its allies come to power, an inquiry will be conducted against Modi over his alleged involvement in the Rafale deal. “The chowkidar will be behind bars and a real chowkidar will be on guard,” he said, in a sharp contrast to the Congress manifesto which largely steered clear of Rafale deal.

Renewing his allegation of corruption and financial misdemeanour in the deal, he said, “Why couldn’t someone from Vidarbha get the deal?

He also gave an open challenge to Modi for a live debate on corruption, unemployment and farmers’ issue for 15 minutes. “Why is he afraid of holding a press conference with the media,” he asked.
