Rajamahendravaram: Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC0 president N Raghuveera Reddy demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should own the responsibility for Rs 43,000 crore Rafale war aircraft scam.

He alleged that Modi had preferred Reliance company in the deal. Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, Raghuveera alleged that Modi was involved in corruption in the purchase of Rafale aircrafts.

He wondered why Modi had remained silent on the issue. He pointed out that the Congress party had demanded a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) investigation into the scam and seeking justice in the court would be the last option of the party, he said.

In reply to a question, Raghuveera said that the Congress will contest on its own to the 25 Lok Sabha and 175 Assembly seats in Andhra Pradesh in 2019 elections. However, a final decision regarding any electoral alliance will be taken by Rahul Gandhi.

He said the Congress party was getting tremendous response from the people and the people are eagerly waiting to see Rahul Gandhi as Prime Minister. Raghuveera said that Rahul Gandhi assured to fulfil all the promises made in AP Reorganisation Act-2014 if the Congress returned to power at the Centre in 2019.

He said the BJP-led NDA government cheated people of AP and though the TDP had delayed its decision, it has finally left the NDA. The APCC chief blamed both TDP and BJP governments for failing to act promptly over the attack on YSR Congress Party president YS Jaganmohan Reddy. BJP, YSRCP and TDP were trying to get political mileage over the incident, he alleged.
