Congratulations to IAF for Rafale
Rahul Gandhi’s 3 Questions for the Government
Congress’ Rahul Gandhi tweeted a jibe at the Modi Government, hours after the first contingent of Rafale jet fighters made a touchdown at Haryana’s Ambala on 30th July, 2020. In his tweets, former INC President Shri Rahul Gandhi, who raises question over the government’s Rs. 59,000-crore deal — revived the three questions he had focused on before the last year’s general elections.
Shri Rahul Gandhi’s questions — posted in both Hindi and English: “Congratulations to IAF for Rafale. Meanwhile, can GOI answer:
1) Why each aircraft costs Rs. 1,670 Crores instead of Rs. 526 Crores?
2) Why 36 aircrafts were bought instead of 126?
3) Why was bankrupt Anil given a Rs. 30,000 Crores contract instead of HAL?”
The Congress party and its leaders continuously alleged that Modi had signed off on an overpriced deal to facilitate an offset contract for Anil Ambani’s inexperienced defence company. The government had rubbished the allegations.
The Congress party continues its demand for an investigation into the deal.
