Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday hit out at Congress President Rahul Gandhi saying his “very low credibility” has been “eroded even further” with him having to express regret to the Supreme Court over his statement in connection with the Rafale deal judgement.
Jaitley said in a video message that there should be sanctity to every word spoken by senior leaders of a political party.
The BJP leader said that Gandhi, of late, has made a daily routine of “making recklessly false statements”. “He was wrong on several counts that I have been pointing out in the last six months. He had no qualms of taking liberty with the truth. The reality is now he has had to express regret,” he said.
