Rafale Scam BJP government cannot disclose Rafale Deal Details

Rafale Scam BJP government cannot disclose Rafale Deal Details

On February 5, 2017 - Minister of Defence (MoD) Nirmala Sitharaman told the Parliament that the government cannot disclose details of the Rafale fighter aircraft deal due to a “Secrecy Agreement” with France.

In a written reply to a question from Congress MP MV Rajeev Gowda in Rajya Sabha, Sitharaman said the government cannot share details like the cost per aircraft due to a secrecy pact. “As per ‘Article-10’ of the Inter-Governmental Agreement (IGA) between Government of India and Government of France on the purchase of Rafale aircraft, the protection of the classified information and material exchanged under IGA is governed by the provisions of the Security Agreement signed between the two nations signed in 2008,”

The Rafale deal courted controversy after the Congress raised allegations that it was overpriced, and that Reliance Defence, owned by Anil Ambani, was favored by the government.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday called the Rafale deal with France a scam after Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said in Parliament that details of the agreement for 36 jets could not be disclosed as it was “classified information”

Rahul Gandhi said, “The Defence Minister says that we will not reveal the amount paid for buying Rafale aircraft. What does this mean? This only means there is a scam. Modi ji personally went to Paris, he changed the deal. The whole country knows about it,”
