Former Uttarakhand chief minister B C Khanduri was removed last year as chairman of the parliamentary standing committee on defence.
The Congress had latched on to the removal of the former army general from the committee to attack the BJP.
At the rally, Rahul asked the audience why the son of a man who had served the armed forces and the BJP for years joined hands with the Congress.
"Despite dedicating his life to the army, the patriot was unceremoniously removed from the panel as he voiced his concern about the country's defence preparedness," the Gandhi scion added.
