Reports say Anil Ambani wrote a letter to Rahul Gandhi explaining Rafale deal, was saddened by allegations

Business Tycoon Anil Ambani has reportedly written a letter to Rahul Gandhi over the allegations made by him and his party on the Rafale deal. According to reports, Ambani has refuted Rahul’s claim that Ambani’s company, Reliance Defence lacks any experience and has asserted that the central government had no role to play in French company Dassault signing the deal with Reliance Defence to be its local partner.

The letter, which was reportedly written on December 12, 2017, reminds Rahul Gandhi of the ‘respectful relationship’ the Ambani family had with the Gandhi family for long years and states that Ambani has been ‘personally saddened’ by the unfortunate comments the Gandhi scion has made for the Ambanis and their company.

The letter further states that not only does Reliance have the necessary experience but they are the leaders in several areas of defence manufacturing. Ambani states that Reliance has the largest private shipyard in Pipavav, Gujrat and is currently building five Naval Offshore Patrol Vessels (NPOV) for the Indian Navy and 14 Fast Patrol Vessels for the Indian Coast Guard. He stated that the Reliance Defence shipyard was the only shipyard in the region selected by the US Navy for maintenance of over a 100 ships from the 7th fleet.

Explaining the Rafale deal, Ambani has reportedly stated that all the 36 aircraft are being manufactured in France and will be delivered to India on a ‘fly away’ basis directly from the Dassault manufacturing facilities in France to the Indian Air Force. He reminded Rahul that the Rafale deal is a deal between two governments and is signed between the two countries.

Ambani has reportedly explained that Dassault’s deal with Reliance Defence was for making components and weapons systems for the aerospace sectors and it involves technology transfer. Ambani has added that the deal between the two companies and it will lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs in India, it will provide new skill development opportunities to Indian engineers and will benefit hundreds of MSMEs and SMEs in India.

Congress and its President Rahul Gandhi have been incessantly attacking the central government over the Rafale deal. Rahul Gandhi had even lied on the floor of the parliament while claiming the French President told him that there is no confidentiality clause in the deal, which the French authorities immediately denied in an official statement.

Yesterday it was also revealed by news reports that the NDA Rafale deal has cost Rs 60 crores less per aircraft than the UPA deal.
