Rafale: ‘Deal me kuch kala hai’: Rahul Gandhi debunks ‘Mr Jaitlie’s lies’ on Rafale

NEW DELHI: The “Mr Jaitlie” dig picked up as president Nirmala Sitharaman not concur to share the rate of Rafale airplanes in an interview in Raksha Bhawan on November 17, 2017? Why are PM, RM & & FM concealing the ‘purchase price’?” he asked.

Inning accordance with Surjewala, while Sitharaman chose not to disclose the price on grounds of a “secrecy agreement”, Financing Minister Arun Jaitley did not do so for factors of “nationwide security”.

India had actually inked an inter-governmental agreement with France in September 2016+ for the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets at a cost of around Rs 58,000 crore, nearly one-and-half years after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the proposition throughout a see to Paris.

Congress has actually declared that there are irregularities in the offer for buying 36 Rafale fighter jets off-shelf from France, declaring that they were being bought at a cost higher than worked out. The party has also dubbed the defence pact the “most significant rip-off” of the Modi federal government and demanded that the prime minister make an explanation on the issue.
