Congress president Rahul Gandhi Friday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modiby calling Rafale deal a “PM Modi-Anil Ambani partnership.” He said, “it is an open and shut case and there is only one man who has done corruption”. Rahul also accused the Dassault CEO of lying about the Rafale deal and that Dassault made Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defence as its offset partner after purchasing land for Ambani.
“The Dassault CEO had said the reason HAL wasn’t given the contract was that Anil Ambani had the land. Now it turns out that the land that Anil Ambani had was purchased by money given by Dassault,” said Rahul. Claiming that Dassault Aviation paid Rs 284 crore to Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defence as the “first instalment of kickbacks”, Rahul said Prime Minister Modi was having “sleepless nights” fearing action if a probe was conducted into the Rafale deal.
