Rahul Gandhi reacts to Janta Ka Reporter’s expose on Rafale deal, asks “Modi ji- nice touch removing the suit. What about the loot?”


Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has reacted to the sensational expose on Rafale deal published by Janta Ka Reporter on Tuesday. Taking to Twitter, the Congress VP demanded an answer from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the ‘loot.’

Sharing Janta Ka Reporter’s expose on his Twitter timeline, Rahul wrote, “Modi ji – nice touch removing the suit. What about the loot?”

Rahul has also made Janta Ka Reporter’s story as his pinned tweet. In two more tweets, Rahul targetted Reliance and asked, “Can you explain “Reliance” on someone with nil experience in aerospace for Rafale deal?”

His third tweet read, “Self “Reliance” is obviously a critical aspect of “Make in India.”

His reaction has come just a day after the Congress party held an emergency news conference to pose five questions to Prime Minister Modi and his government.

Addressing the media, the party’s head of communications, Randeep Singh Surjewala, had said that the Centre’s Narendra Modi government was indulging in an unforgivable game of compromising ‘National Interests’ and ‘National Security’.

Surjewala had also said that a ‘huge Scam’ was brewing in the procurement of fighter aircrafts for Indian Air Force. On Wednesday #ModiRafaleScam had become a top Twitter trend.

Reliance Defence and the BJP too had reacted but called the allegations baseless.

In our EXCLUSIVE report, Janta Ka Reporter had asked if Prime Minister Narendra Modi had junked the UPA’s defence deal with the French company on 126 Rafale fighter jets with transfer of technology to India to help his friend Anil Ambani. His decision cost India thousands of crores of rupees and resulted in the loss of technology that could have secured the indigenous manufacturing of these fighter aircrafts in future.

Surjewala also asked why Modi had promoted the interests of ‘one industrial group i.e. Reliance Defence Limited, which subsequently led to the company tying up and entering into a joint venture with Dassault Aviation worth Rs.30,000 crore.

He said, “Why was this done by Prime Minister bypassing the interests of a reputed
public sector undertaking like HAL? Why has the joint venture for the biggest-ever Indian defence deal between Dassault Aviation and Reliance Defence Limited not gone through the proper procedure of approval by the Union Cabinet, Cabinet Committee on Security and
Foreign Investment Promotion Board?”

Surjewala’s press conference was blacked out by Indian news channels understandably due to fear of reprisals from the Modi government and the industrialist in question.
