The BJP on Friday slammed the Congress' allegations of corruption in the multi-billion dollar Rafale deal by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, saying the party never wanted to push defence manufacturing in the country.
"The Congress betrayed the people of the country on the issue of defence manufacturing for 65 years. It happened because the Congress government did not want to push defence production in the country," Trivedi alleged.
Reacting to dismissal of petitions of senior Congress leaders Kamal Nath and Sachin Pilot seeking draft electoral rolls in searchable text format in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, Trivedi said it has "exposed" the party.
"One more lie of the Congress was exposed today by the court. The Congress leaders failed to produce verified documents with regard to their objection in the court," he said.
The petition was about allegation of fake voters in the two states.
