The Congress has been attacking the Narendra Modi government over the Rafale issue, alleging corruption in the deal.
"Rahul Gandhi is a directionless leader. Only allegations cannot make someone corrupt. Gandhi has no facts or evidence (in his allegations)," he told reporters in Jaipur on Monday.
The HRD minister said there were evidences and proof when there were allegations (against former UPA government) over coal scam.
The minister also visited Motidungari Ganesh temple with health minister Kalicharan Saraf before attending higher education and human resource conclave.
