The Congress has been questioning the saffron party over the deal for 36 Rafale jets from France’s Dassault Aviation. It accused the BJP party for wrongdoing and personal benefiting from the deal.

The Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today queued up 15 questions for the Congress in a Facebook post and accused the party head of “peddling untruth” and declared that “Rahul Gandhi’s misadventure” would have cost the national security.

Mr Jaitley said that all the allegations made by the Congress Party were completely bogus.

Arun Jaitley said,”This (allegations on Rafale deal) is like a kindergarten or primary school debate. ‘Well, I was paying 500 something and you’ve paid 1,600 something’. That’s the argument being given; it shows how little understanding Rahul Gandhi has,”

“Not only did Congress get a bad deal, they compromised national security by abandoning it due to policy paralysis,” he added to remind Rahul Gandhi that it was the government led Congress which initiated deal back in 2007 and he asked Mr Gandhi to answer all his questions.

The Rafale multirole jet was opted in 2012 over rival offers from the US, Europe and Russia. The country initially planned to buy 18 off-the-shelf jets from France’s Dassault Aviation with 108 others to be assembled in the country by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.

Modi govt announced to buy 36 “ready-to-fly” Rafale jets in place of exploring a technology transfer from Dassault Aviation and getting assembled in the country.

Mr Jaitley shared that the offset terms and conditions for the foreign vendor make it necessary for the vendor to partner with an Indian firm wiping out the allegation of involving the business people in the deal.

He said  “Let’s be clear, this is a government-to-government arrangement. Offset has nothing to do with this contract… Under a policy devised by the UPA, every defence supplier has to undertake some offsets… Dassault can also enter into contracts with whomever they want,”

The Finance Minister supported the  “Make-in-India”  and said that it was the Congress party which was involved in various defence scams and the party never came up with a concept to promote private manufacturing in India.
