rafaleRafale fighter jets deal issue has created ruckus the Rajya Sabha today and Finance minister Arun Jaitley has clarified on this issue.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi lambasted at the Narendra Modi government for maintaining “secrecy” over the deal with France for 36 Rafale fighter jets

He said, Defense Minister herself said that cost of Rafale aircrafts will be told but now she is saying it is a state secret & cannot be revealed… so, which one of her statements is correct?. He has asked PM 3 questions-cost of jets if they asked cabinet committee on security about it & why was contract snatched from HAL & given to a businessman?. But got no answers.Did you see PM y’day?He gave a long speech but wasn’t interested in answering fundamental questions.

Defending the secrecy over the Rafale fighter jets purchase issue, Arun Jaitley said, Corruption allegations manufactured. Congress compromising on security, My charge is that they are seriously compromising India’s security.I accuse Rahul Gandhi & Congress of compromising National Security, by asking details of Rafale deal. We are as much accountable to the Parliament as the UPA govt was. Divulging unit price of Rafale jets will let our enemy know that we are buying Rafale jets.
