Rafale row: Modi, Ambani carried out surgical strike on defence forces, betrayed soul of India, says Rahul

After former french premier Francois Hollande said that India wanted Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defence as a partner in the Rafale jet deal, the opposition has traded guns towards Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In a scathing tweet, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said that Modi should be ashamed of himself for betraying the soul of India.

Modi’s fierce critic Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi in a tweet said:

The deal to purchase 36 Rafale fighter jets from France was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015 and signed in 2016.

In another tweet, The Congress President said that Modi changed the deal and personally delivered a billion dollar deal to a bankrupt Ambani.

The French government on Friday issued a statement, saying they were not involved in the choice of Indian industrial partners. “The French government is in no manner involved in the choice of Indian industrial partners who have been, are being, or will be selected by French companies,” the statement read.

However, the Congress on Saturday said the French statement “conceals more than it reveals”.
