New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday reminded Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley that less than six hours were left to set up a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to probe the Rafale deal.

The Congress chief's attack comes after Jaitley termed the Congress' charges on the defence deal a 'complete falsehood' in his blogpost.

Gandhi said, "Young India is waiting. I hope you're busy convincing (Prime Minister Narendra) Modiji and Anil Ambaniji about why they should listen to you and approve this (JPC)!"

On Wednesday, the Congress President demanded that the Centre should form a JPC to probe the 'Great Rafale Robbery' and gave Jaitley 24 hours to 'check and revert' on the same.
