Congress president Rahul Gandhi today took a fresh jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Rafale deal, alleging that the joint venture of Mr 56s friend received USD 20 billion actual benefits through offset contracts in the deal. Taking to Twitter, Gandhi said he forgot to mention earlier about the offset contracts of USD 16 billion to the private entitys joint venture, and said the actual benefit is of USD 20 billion, equivalent to Rs 1,30,000 crore. Dear Trolls, I apologise for my earlier tweet in which I stated Mr 56s friends JV, received 4 Billion US$s of off set contracts. I forgot to add the 16 Billion US$ RAFALE 20 BILLION US$, is the actual benefit. So Sorry!!, he tweeted, using the hashtag 130000CroreRafaleScam. The Congress has also given a notice for breach of privilege in Lok Sabha against the prime minister and the defence minister on the Rafale issue.
