Explaining this, a senior Congress leader and former Defense Minister A. K. Antony said that there was no such thing as to say that in 2008 the contract between India and France could not be disclosed. So the government could not hide the prices of the Rafael contract. This issue should be examined by the CAG and Public Accounts Committee.
Congress leader Anand Sharma said, as the government is responsible for the parliament, they should explain why the Prime Minister and the Defense Minister mismanaged the country? The French government has no problem telling the price of Rafael Deal. Congress spokesman Randeep Surjewala said, “The Prime Minister and the Defense Minister have misled the Parliament over the Rafale Agreement.” It is clear that the privilege of the privilege has been done.
In the meantime, on 20th July, Rahul Gandhi had said during the motion of anti-Modi government in parliament that the President of France had told him that there was no problem with the country’s exposure to Rafael’s exposure.
