Congress is raising questions on Rafale deal to hide their failures: Dharmendra Pradhan

Gandhi also reiterated the Congress' demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the deal. He claimed that if it was conducted, names of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and businessman Anil Ambani will come to the fore.

Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan on Friday said that “Congress is raising questions on Rafale deal to hide their failures.”

“Supreme Court today did a great work for India. Congress is raising questions on Rafale deal to hide their failures. There was no truth in that and Supreme Court proved it today. If Congress and its President have morals, they should apologise before the nation,” ANI quoted Pradhan as saying.

His comments came just a few hours after Congress president Rahul Gandhi came out all guns blazing at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and alleged that there was massive corruption in the Rafale deal.

Gandhi also reiterated the Congress' demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the deal. He claimed that if it was conducted, names of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and businessman Anil Ambani will come to the fore.

Against the government decision to procure 36 Rafale fighter jets, four writ petitions were filed but none of the petitioners including ex-Union ministers Arun Shourie and Yashwant Sinha were able to satisfy the Supreme Court to register FIR by the CBI for a court-monitored probe.
