Raebareli:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in Raebareli today on his first trip to the traditional seat of the Gandhi family, where he attacked them over the Supreme Court's Rafale verdict, the AgustaWestland deal and the Bofors deal. Speaking at his first public meeting in the constituency, "I want to know from the Congress -- is it agitated today and telling lie after lie because the BJP government's defence deals do not have any Quattrocchi "mama", Christian Michel uncle?" PM Modi said. Ottavio Quattrochi, an Italian national, was an alleged middleman in the Bofors deal made by the government headed by former Prime Minister and Rahul Gandhi's father, Rajiv Gandhi.

Christian Michel was recently extradited by the United Arab Emirates and allegedly brokered the chopper deal for VVIPs with AgustaWestland. PM Modi is also visiting Prayagraj, formerly known as Allahabad, to review preparations for the Kumbh Mela to be held in the city next year.
