New Delhi: Attacking the government over Rafale deal, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday questioned the three-day visit of Nirmala Sitharaman to France.

He said, "Why has suddenly Defence Minister rushed to Rafale plant in France? What is the emergency?"

Claiming Rafale deal to be a 'clear cut case of corruption', Gandhi said, "Earlier former French President revealed that Indian PM had told them that Reliance should get a deal. Now a senior official of Rafale has said the same thing."

Further, calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi 'corrupt', he said, "I would like to tell the youth of the country that the Prime Minister of India is a corrupt man."
