Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for saying Rafale jets could have given better results for India in hitting a Jaish camp in Pakistan, BSP chief Mayawati on Monday asked the BJP government at the Centre why not a single Rafale fighter was inducted in the Indian Air Force during its rule.
“Rafale fighter could have prove useful in fight against Pakistan, claims PM Modi in his rallies.
Even then not a single Rafale inducted into IAF fleet during his government. Better explain people why this kind of lapse and neglect even by the BJP on the issue of country’s safety and security?” Mayawati said in a tweet.
Last week after the Indian Air Force struck a Jaish-e-Mohammad camp in Balakot, about 80 km from the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Modi said, “Rafale fighters could have delivered even better results”.
His reference was apparently to the stealth of Rafale, an air-dominance aircraft.
