PM Modi took this opportunity of lauding Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s reply in Parliament today.
Earlier on Saturday, Sitharaman had alleged Congress of not making the important deal “till something else was done”. “You stopped the deal, forgetting the Air Force was suffering. The deal didn’t get you money,” she asserted. The referred deal is the Rafale deal.
Noting that for BJP national security was a priority she said, “There is a difference between defence deal and deal in defence.”
Also, targeting Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi’s incessant chowkidaar comment, Modi replied, “The thief always wants to outsmart the watchman”.
Rahul Gandhi had previously accused the Prime Minister as a ‘thief’. This was an indirect reply to his comment.
This was PM Modi’s second visit to Odisha in less than two weeks.
