Congress continuously attacked
After a major disclosure on Monday about the Rafel deal, Congress party has asked, ‘What corruption was the Prime Minister Narendra Modi trying to hide?’ The report published on Monday in The Hindu suggests that some key anti-corruption provisions were removed while making changes in the standard defense procurement process a few days before signing the Rafel Deal.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi also targeted Prime Minister Modi and said that he has looted. Rahul said, “There are anti-corruption streams in every defense deal. The Hindu has reported that the PM has removed the anti-corruption block, it is clear that the PM helped in the loot.
Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala called the English newspaper sharing the news of ‘The Hindu‘, tweeted, “Modi ji also gave exemption in its anti-corruption provision after forgiving sovereign guarantee in the Rafel deal.” However, who wanted to hide what corruption? “
Senior party leader P. Chidambaram said, “Rafel Deals are being exposed more quickly than the government did not think.” He said that the price was increased first, then it was revealed that the Prime Minister’s Office weakened the efforts of the Indian negotiating team by parallel talks. It has now been disclosed that changes in the provisions of the standard defense procurement process were made. He also alleged that Dassault benefited only from this deal.
