Twitter India is replete with #RahulKiDalali tweets as an increasing number of aware users have started raising questions on Rahul Gandhi’s links with the shady arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari after Opindia published its explosive expose.
Recently, Opindia had exposed the unscrupulous link between the Congress President Rahul Gandhi and dubious arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari. Rahul Gandhi had purchased 6.5 acres of land located at Hassanpur, Palwal from HL Pahwa for a sum of Rs. 26,47,000. Pahwa was involved in numerous other land deals with Robert Vadra and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and often, he bought back these same lands at inflated prices even though his cash balance was negative. In this, he was assisted by CC Thampi who is closely associated with arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari.
As the story gathered steam after Union Ministers Arun Jaitley and Smriti Irani picked up the Opindia report to slam Gandhi scion and his dubious links with CC Thampi and Sanjay Bhandari, Twitter denizens trended #RahulKiDalali to shed light on the murky deals largely ignored by a section of mainstream media outlets.
A few of the Twitteratis used the hashtag to expose Sanjay Bhandari’s murky deals in the past under the auspices of UPA government.
Syntac, where Sanjay Bhandari has majority shareholding is under the scanner for one Petroleum Contract and one Defence deal. Petroleum contract was granted by the UPA-I government in 2009&Defence deal was sanctioned in the year 2005 #RahulKiDalali https://t.co/qjGw6vzsAE

One Twitter user emphasized how the dubious land deals by Rahul Gandhi were swept under the rugs by major news outlets save a few.
Enough is enough. Except for single channel, nobody is holding debates on mega scams done by RaGa and Family, latest one which was exposed by @OpIndia_com, so I am making a thread on lies & deceit of Gandhi Parivar. Request you to share and add #RahulKiDalali pic.twitter.com/0lgWzcMWq8

Several Twitteratis sought explanation from Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who has conspicuously remained silent ever since Opindia published the expose.

On Republic @smritiirani exposes Rahul Gandhi-Vadra-Pahwa-Thampi-Sanjay Bhandari Land & Defense Deal. No wonder Rahul Gandhi is raising issue on Rafale Deal to cover up his sins #RahulKiDalali pic.twitter.com/kYnN8z3G1V

Some had the Twitterverse in a split with their unparalleled wit and humour.

Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party have remained inexplicably mute on the revelations. The Congress party had come out with an unofficial response that accepted the land deal, however, failed to comment on the dubious link.
