Mumbai | Shiv Sena on Friday taking a jibe at the Supreme Court’s verdict on Rafale deal said that if the Supreme Court cant decide the pricing of Rafale deal, how can it decide on the construction of Ram Temple.
Speaking to media, Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut,” Supreme Court has said nothing wrong, deciding on pricing is not the Supreme Court’s job but similarly deciding on building Ram Temple is also not their job.” Raut further said that Rafale Deal issue will be sorted out in Parliament and not in Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court on Friday gave the Narendra Modi government a clean chit on the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets from France and dismissed all petitions seeking a direction to the CBI to register an FIR for alleged irregularities in the deal. The apex court said there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the multi-billion dollar Rafale deal.
Opposition parties led by the Congress have been attacking the Modi government over the deal, alleging that it was struck at an exorbitant price and benefited an Indian businessman at the cost of the government-run Hindustan Aeronautics Limited. The charges have been denied by the government.
