Rafale charges by Shourie, Sinha fabricated: Defence Minister Sitharaman

AMN / New Delhi

Nirmala Sithraman during release of a book on achivementsDefence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman Wednesday dismissed as “fabricated” the allegations by former BJP ministers Arun Shourie and Yashwant Sinha that the Modi government’s deal to buy Rafale jets from France was the “biggest defence scandal” in the country.

“All allegations being levelled in various press conferences are already answered on the floor of the Parliament. A recent attempt, in the House, to malign the government through baseless charges collapsed. Today’s was yet another attempt at repeating fabricated facts,” Sitharaman said in a tweet.

The tweet came in response to Sinha and Shourie’s allegation that the Rafale jet deal was “unilaterally” finalized by Prime Minister Narendra Modi by violating mandatory procedures, and the scandal was “larger than any thus far”.

They sought a time-bound probe by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India and asked the government to come clean on the issue.

Rafale deal bigger than Bofors, say Yashwant, Shourie, Bhushan
