A day after top Attorney General informed the Supreme Court of India that documents relating the deal have been stolen from Ministry of Defense. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi while addressing the media over the Rafale deal controversy said that PM Modi performed bypass surgery in Rafale deal.
“Yes of course take action on those involved in this missing documents case but also initiate an inquiry on PMO making parallel negotiations,” Gandhi said at a media conference in the national capital. Sharpening his attack moments later, he asked: “Why doesn’t the PM get a probe ordered if he isn’t guilty”.
“Gayab ho gaya (It has vanished) is the government’s new tagline,” Rahul Gandhi said at the start of his briefing. “First”, he said, “it was the 2 crore jobs for youth that vanished. Then the promised right price to farmers for their crops, then the promised 15 lakh to be deposited in bank accounts…Now, Rafale file has disappeared,“ he went on before accusing the government of trying to evade an investigation.
The deal has also become controversial on account of the fact that one of the offset deals signed by Dassault is with the Reliance Group of Anil Ambani.
