Congress president Rahul Gandhi has been relentless in his criticism of the Rafale deal. In his latest jibe the Congress president has now raised questions on Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s France visit, alleging that work has begun to justify the prime minister’s decision to buy Rafale fighter aircraft.
He took to Twitter to say while the Supreme Court has asked for the details of the Rafale decision-making process, the decision to buy the fighter aircraft was taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Rahul Gandhi alleged that processes to justify Modi’s decision are being invented.
The Supreme Court has asked for the #RAFALE decision making process. It’s quite simple really…
The PM decided.
The processes to justify his decision are yet to be invented. But work has begun.
Ps. In this connection, Raksha Mantri is leaving for France tonight. https://t.co/FJJzlBulb0
