While responding to a question whether Reliance chairman Anil Ambani benefitted by the Rafale deal, PM Modi had told ABP news, “Won’t you believe the Supreme Court? Won’t you believe the CAG report?”
The purchase of 36 twin-engine Rafale fighter jets from France has triggered a political controversy, with the Congress making the issue a poll plank and attacking the BJP and PM Modi over the deal.
The Opposition parties have alleged that the NDA government bought the fighter aircraft, built by Dassault Aviation of France, under a direct government-to-government agreement at a much higher price than the one that was being negotiated for 126 aircraft by the previous UPA government under an open tender.
