Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had yesterday held a press conference where he had stated that the price of aircraft was 9% less than what was quoted in the 2011 deal.

Reports also state that under the NDA deal, Rafale has made certain ‘India-specific’ changes in the aircraft’s weapons system which were not a part of the original deal. The aircraft under the NDA deal will reportedly possess the METEOR and SCALP missile systems which were not a part of the original deal.

The Congress has long been alleging irregularities in the Rafale deal despite several clarifications by the government. Today the Congress has moved a privilege motion against PM Modi and Raksha Mantri Nirmala Sitharaman for the same. Congress President Rahul Gandhi had lied on the floor of the parliament when he claimed that French President Macron had told him that there is no confidentiality clause in the Rafale deal.
