Manoj Tiwari: Statement of Eric Trappier over Rafale deal was slap on Rahul Gandhi’s face
Delhi BJP unit chief Manoj Tiwari on Wednesday termed Dassault CEO Eric Trappier’s recent statement on the Rafale deal as a slap on the face of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi. He said that speaking a lie again and again did not turn it into truth.
Speaking to reporters at the state BJP office in New Delhi, Manoj Tiwari said, “The Congress president seems to believe that telling a lie again and again makes it a truth, but the Dassault CEO’s statement is a slap on his face”.
Taking a dig at ruling Aam Aadmi Party, he said that the recent attack on him by the “AAP’s goons” in front of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at Signature Bridge in the national capital had “exposed the party”.
Earlier, in the day, Tiwari addressed several election meetings in Delhi. Claiming that the BJP was the only party which worked for development, the Delhi party unit chief said putting it (BJP) at the helm in civic bodies would accelerate development as the party was in power both in the state and the Centre. He also clicked selfies with youngsters and sang songs of Chhath Puja to woo the voters.
It is to be noted that Trappier had in a media interview defended the Rs 58,000 crore-Rafale deal between India and France. He had claimed no wrong-doing and said his company chose Reliance as an offset partner.
