February 11, 2019: The Congress on Monday once again hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused him of waving off anti-corruption clauses just before signing the Rafale deal with France.

Party president Rahul Gandhi said the prime minister himself allowed Anil Ambani to "steal" Rs 30,000 crore.

"NoMo anti-corruption clause. The chowkidar himself opened the door to allow Anil Ambani to steal 30,000 crore from the IAF," he said in a tweet.

The Congress said this in response to a report published by The Hindu with the title 'Government waived anti-corruption clauses in Rafale deal'. It has been authored by N Ram, the publisher of the newspaper.

In a series of tweets, the Congress said the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) disregarded the advice given to it. "Throwing all good sense to the wind, the PMO also discarded the advice to create an escrow account under the control of the French government to release payments from India. Instead it chose to pay Dassault upfront in advance. Who was the PMO trying to benefit?"

The Congress has been attacking the BJP, and PM Modi in particular, for alleged irregularities in the purchase of 36 Rafale fighter jets from French defence manufacturer Dassault Aviation. Congress president Rahul Gandhi has been accusing the prime minister to be a "thief" who "lied" to the country.
