Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday accused the Indian National Congress of playing petty politics over the Rafale and abolition of Article 370 issues.

Prime Minister was addressing a political rally in poll-bound Haryana's Kurukshetra. 

'Whenever the country is happy about something, the leaders of INC have problems. It is not limited to Rafale only. But whenever the nation gets appreciation and is praised, it evokes a negative reaction from the
Congress,' PM Modi said. 

"On Dussehra, India got the first Rafale jet in France. You tell me when were you happy or not when the Air Force got Rafale. You are feeling proud that our force got Rafale. 125 crore citizens are proud of it. But the Congress people always have a problem when people are happy. This thing causes them pain. This is not limited to Rafale only," he said. 

"The attitude of Congress leaders is always negative to everything which earns accolades for India. When India gets an award for cleanliness, they have a problem. They also have a problem when world leaders come to the programme of Indian leaders," he added.

Congress had vociferously raised the Rafale deal issue in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections, alleging that the cost of a fighter jet in the deal concluded by the Modi government was higher than that negotiated by the Congress-led UPA government.
