New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the “self-proclaimed chowkidar”, take immediate action against Defence Ministry officials for allegedly receiving kickbacks of Rs 17.5 crore in purchase of spares for the IAF’s An-32 transport aircraft.

“Ministry Of Defence, India (MODI) officials, accused of making millions of dollars in kickbacks via Dubai by Ukrainian government in An-32 deal. Modiji, as our self proclaimed chokidar, I urge you to take immediate action against your corrupt MODI officials,” Gandhi said in a tweet.

He attached a report by The Indian Express which said that Ukraine is probing the alleged kickbacks in India’s purchase of spares for military transport aircraft An-32 in which its anti-corruption bureau suspects involvement of Indian Defence Ministry officials.
