Intensifying his attack on the prime minister a day after the Supreme Court agreed to hear review petitions on its Rafale verdict, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said on Thursday that Narendra Modi was "not invincible" and it would be proved after the Lok Sabha elections.
In a jolt to the Centre, the Supreme Court Wednesday agreed to hear petitions for a review of its verdict in the Rafale fighter jet deal on the basis of "leaked" secret documents by dismissing its preliminary objections.
Buoyed by the apex court's decision, the Congress president once again dared the Prime Minister to join an open debate with him on the Rafale deal and said that he was "ready to go to Race Course Road (PM's residence)" for it.
"I guarantee that Modi will not look anyone in the eye after the debate," he said, and challenged the prime minister to take "any action against me".
The Congress has been alleging massive irregularities in the deal while the government has strongly rejected the charges.
