PM Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi questioning if the pact to buy 36 Rafale jets from France was at all a government-to-government deal.

"The latest skeleton to tumble out of the Rafale cupboard: No guarantee by the French government backing the deal.

"But, our Prime Minister says there's a letter from the French promising to be faithful! That's enough to call this a government-to-government deal," Gandhi tweeted, adding "#BikGayaChowkidar" (watchman sold out).

Gandhi's latest jibe at Modi comes a day after the Centre told the Supreme Court that there was no sovereign guarantee by the French government backing the deal but only a letter of comfort.

The submission was made by Attorney General K.K. Venugopal before a bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and K.M. Joseph, which reserved its verdict on PILs on the fighter jet deal.
