Rahul Gandhi Slams PM on Rafale Case

Gandhi allegedly slams the Modi Government the day after Defence Minister disclose Rafale case

Congress president Rahul Gandhi openly alleged Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Rafale incident, says there was a “scam” in the deal which was “personally got done” by him.

The incident happened the day after Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman told Parliament that the government cannot disclose details of the Rafale fighter jet deal as per the inter-governmental agreement

“For the first time, the Defence Minister is saying that we will not share details of money spent on buying the aircraft…yeh kya tareeka hain….I spoke during the Gujarat polls that there is a scam (in the Rafale deal). Modi ji has personally got the deal done,” Gandhi told reporters outside Parliament.

He also added saying, “Modi ji had personally gone to Paris. Personally, the deal was changed. Entire India knows it. And the Defence Minister is saying she will not inform India, the Indian martyrs and their relatives about the money spent on buying those aircraft. What does this mean? This only means there is some scam,”

“Top Secret (Not for Distribution). RM says the price negotiated for each RAFALE jet by the PM and his “reliable” buddy is a state secret. Action Points. 1.Informing Parliament about the price is a national security threat 2.Brand all who ask Anti National,” he tweeted.

A number of questions have been raised by the party saying, What is the price per aircraft of the 36 Rafale aircraft being purchased by Modi government? Why are Prime Minister and Defence Minister hiding the purchase price? Is it correct that per aircraft pricing of Rafale as per UPA negotiation comes to 80.95 million dollars (Rs 526.1 crore) as against Modi government’s negotiated price of 241.66 million dollars (Rs 1,570.8 crore) as per current exchange rate? Who is responsible for the loss to exchequer? noted by the members of the party.
