Prime Minister Narendra Modi has accused Congress president Rahul Gandhi of insulting Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. Without naming Mr Gandhi, Mr Modi described the Congress leader's remarks as an insult to all women in the country. Addressing a rally at Agra in Uttar Pradesh, Prime minister said, the country has seen how opposition leaders tried to insult Ms Sitharaman in Lok Sabha when she was speaking during a debate on Rafale deal. Mr Modi said, it is a matter of pride that a woman has become Defence Minister for the first time in the country. 

Mr Modi said, opposition parties like SP and BSP are coming together because they are scared of his clean-up mission to uproot corruption. Prime Minister called himself a 'chowkidar' who can pick up a wrongdoer even in darkness in his fight against corruption. Quoting media reports, Mr Modi claimed that middleman Christian Michel, arrested in AgustaWestland VVIP chopper case, was also lobbying for other aircraft deal during the previous UPA government. Prime Minister said Congress should answer which leader of their party has a connection with Michel. 

Mr Modi launched various development projects worth 3,907 crore rupees in Agra yesterday.
