Explain Rafale cost, Rahul Gandhi tells Nirmala Sitharaman 18.11.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi slammed the Narendra Modi government saying it was 'shameful' that Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was being silenced by the PM in connection with Rafale deal. He asked her whether PM Modi had taken permission from the Cabinet Committee on Security before announcing the purchase of the Rafale fighter aircraft in Paris. Gandhi's retort came a day after Sitharaman tried to douse the fire on the allegations raised by the Congress that the deal went through bypassing procedures to benefit an Indian businessman accusing the government of compromising national interest and security while promoting 'crony capitalism' and causing a loss to the public exchequer. "Dear RM, what's shameful is your boss silencing you. Please tell us: 1. Final price of each Rafale jet? 2. Did PM take CCS permission before announcing purchase in Paris? 3. Why PM bypassed experienced HAL and gave the deal to AA rated businessman with no defence experience?" Gandhi ...

Rafale deal: Defence Minister rejects Opposition's charge as 'shameful' 18.11.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday rejected the Opposition's allegations of bypassing norms and getting into a deal to purchase overpriced 36 Rafale fighter jets. She said the "bickering" on the cost was shameful as the Narendra Modi government had to go in for an "emergency procurement" to strengthen the Indian Air Force. Countering the Congress claims of crony capitalism to benefit a businessman and causing a huge loss to the exchequer, Sitharaman said that the UPA government could not take a decision on purchasing the fighter jets in its ten-year rule between 2004 and 2014. Rafale became the lowest bidder in 2012 but there was no breakthrough to sign the deal. The Congress claimed that each aircraft would cost Rs 526.10 crore as per negotiations done by the UPA government, while the cost has now been escalated to Rs 1,570.80 crore. The party alleged that not only was the deal done on much higher rates than what was decided during the tender process but also interests of public sector ...

Even as Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi continued targetting Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the Rafale deal, the Indian Air Force Chief rebutted the allegations and said India got the combat jets and 'fair price'. Air Chief Marshal Birender Singh Dhanoa, who was in Punjab's Adampur, addressed media after an event and said that there is no controversy over the deal. “There is no controversy. What is the controversy, I don't understand! It (Rafale jets) are not overpriced. The government has negotiated a very good deal,” the Air Chief Marshal said. “I think we have negotiated a better deal in the Rafale contract than what we did in MMRCA (Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft),” he added.
