New Delhi. Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that under his rule the situation in the country was like “andher nagri, chaupat raja” (unjust regime of a failed king).
He claimed there should be an FIR against Modi rather than the media which had highlighted the “theft” in the Rafale deal.
“First the Rafale money was stolen, now the file has been stolen. There should be an FIR against Modi ji instead of the media that found the theft. This is called ‘andher nagri, chaupat raja,” he posted on the microblogging website in Hindi.
पहले राफेल का पैसा चोरी हुआ,
और अब फाईल चोरी हो गई।
FIR तो मोदी जी पर होनी चाहिए,
पर FIR कर रहे हैं, चोरी पकड़ने वाले मीडिया की।
इसे कहते हैं, ‘अंधेर नगरी, चौपट राजा’। pic.twitter.com/G5iatUL8wM

Earlier in the day addressing a press conference, he said there should be justice for all and if the government wants to investigate the media highlighting the corruption in the deal, there should be a probe into the charges against Modi too.
