Jaitley said in Rajya Sabha we inherited 4.5 per cent fiscal deficit from UPA and have brought that down to 3.5 per cent.
Rahul's statement came minutes after he used the jibe on Twitter to criticise the Centre's claim that the UPA government had never released details of defence purchases.
On Thursday, Jaitley had said then defence ministers Pranab Mukherjee and A.K. Antony had refused to disclose the details of the weapons purchased from the USA and Israel and added that the present government was following the tradition in national security. To nail your lie, here are three Parliamentary replies by the UPA with full transparency on pricing. "Now do ask our Raksha Mantri to tell India how much each RAFALE jet cost". Now the new act is, let us manufacture an allegation of corruption against the NDA. "So when you couldn't find anything, you said please disclose the price of the Rafale deal", Jaitley said while replying to the debate on the budget.
