Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday outrightly rejected allegation of corruption in the Rafale aircraft deal stating that a lie spoken many times cannot turn into truth.
He was responding to Congress charges on the issue during Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha.
Mr Singh said the government has been consistent in its stand that it is ready for a discussion on the issue.
He wondered as to why the main opposition party is running away from discussion on the aircraft deal.
Earlier, Mallikarjun Kharge of Congress raised the issue reiterating his party’s demand for a JPC probe into the deal.
