New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi, on Wednesday, tweeted to hold a press conference at 1530 hours on Rafale deal against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's claim that the Rafale deal signed by his government was better than the one prepared during the UPA 2.

Earlier, a report in one of the leading newspapers 'The Hindu' titled 'Rafale deal not on better terms than UPA-era offer' created much political whirl.

Tagging 'The Hindu' report Rahul Gandhi tweeted: The PM defended his personal RAFALE bypass deal on 2 counts :

1. Better Price

2. Faster Delivery

In Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP) meeting, Rahul said, "Congress is defeating the BJP in ideological fight and also in terms of daily discourse."

He further said Congress is the "only party" that speaks for the entire country as a united entity".

"Unemployment, demonetisation and the Rafale scam have undermined the Modi government's credibility," he alleged.

Addressing the CPP, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi said: "Bluff, bluster and intimidation have been the governance philosophy of the Modi government."

She blatantly criticized Modi government saying it has "brazenly tossed aside truth and transparency," and in BJP reign India has witnessed economic stress and social distress, "Last five years have been a time of unprecedented economic stress and social strain."
