Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday accused the Congress of misleading people by raking up the Rafale fighter jet deal issue repeatedly.

The Minister's remarks during Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha, prompted the Congress to criticise the government and stage a walkout from the House.

"The issue has been discussed in detail in the House and the Supreme Court has also put the matter to rest. The Congress has been raking up the issue every now and then. But the truth will remain true," he said.

Politics is not done by by misleading the people. A person should have the guts to speak the truth, Singh added.

To this, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge reiterated his party's demand to constitute a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to probe the deal.

"The Prime Minister does not have the courage to constitute a JPC. You constitute a JPC, we will prove the misdeeds," he said.

Kharge had earlier said that if the Prime Minister has nothing to hide, then he should come forth and announce the JPC probe for a detailed inquiry into the matter.
