Congress MP Sunil Jakhar prays for breach of privilege against PM Modi on Rafale row

(UNI) The Congress member from Gurdaspur in Punjab Sunil Jakhar on Monday made a petition to the Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Majahan praying for a privilege motion against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for what he said “deliberately misleading the Supreme Court and Parliament” in connection with the Rafale fighter jet deal.
In his petition, a copy of which was made available here, Mr Jakhar alleged that there was “serious miss representation of vital, significant facts” to the Supreme Court.
He accused that the government has “not only misled” the apex court but also “casts aspersion” on Parliament and the Public Accounts Committee.
Speaker Sumitra Mahajan amid din told the House that she has received “some” motions of breach of privilege but the issues are under her consideration.
