‘PM Modi involved in leaking details of Balakot to journalist’: Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi alleged prior information on Balakot air strike was leaked to a journalist. The Congress leader accused Prime Minister Modi of ‘leaking information’. Rahul was speaking to media in Karur on the 3rd day of his three-day visit to Tamil Nadu. “If the information was available to a journalist, if it was on WhatsApp, I'm sure the enemy forces can also have access. I'm asking a very simple question, why is it that there is no inquiry on this?" Gandhi said responding to a question. “Only these five people knew. Somebody out of these five people had told the journalist. If it is not the Prime Minister, why has he not ordered an inquiry and said that treason has taken place? Somebody out of these five people has put the nation and Indian Air Force at risk. I want to find out who it is. Why has he (Prime Minister) not done that? The only reason he has not done that is because he is involved in this type of leaking of information," he said. Watch the full video for more.
