Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday had said he had detailed information about 'personal corruption' involving Prime Minister Modi.

He further threatened the BJP, saying the prime minister's 'balloon' will burst if he reveals the information.

The BJP, however, refuted the allegations and said Rahul's remarks showed Congress' 'desperation' and 'frustration'.

Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said that the BJP was terrified of Rahul .

"Rahul Gandhi ji ke bare mein aisi baatein karte hain, matlab unse wo ghabraaye hue hain (Saying such things about Rahul Gandhi shows they are afraid)," ANI quoted Kharge .

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took a dig at both the parties, saying that a friendly match was going on between the two.

"Friendly match- BJP says they hv Augusta Westland against Congress. Cong says they hv sahara/Birla against BJP. Both don't disclose," Kejriwal tweeted.
