Rahul Gandhi holds yet another presser on Rafale deal, said this

comes as the Congress president shared no evidence or document to substantiate his allegations

It was yet another presser from Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on the issue of Rafale jet fighter deal between India and France.

Citing a media report in a web portal, Rahul Gandhi alleged it was Dassault Aviation that paid Rs 284 crores to Anil Ambani’s company as first instalment.

Interestingly, he went on to comment that Prime Minister Narendra Modi won’t survive an inquiry on Rafale, I guarantee.

This comes as the Congress president shared no evidence or document to substantiate his allegations.

The Congress and other opposition parties have been attacking the 36-fighter jet deal alleging that the government signed a not-so-favourable contract solely to help Anil Ambani.

The Supreme Court this week asked the government for details of how Dassault chose companies in Anil Ambani’s group to partner with in India.

Reliance Defence was chosen as one of those “offset” partners.

The opposition has alleged that the company was chosen in a process that lacked transparency.
