Congress did not even sign a deal with Dassault, Rahul Gandhi. When do you plan to stop lying?

Since Rahul Gandhi can’t stop talking about Rafale, we also can’t stop talking about Rahul Gandhi talking about Rafale. Continuing his campaign for upcoming assembly election in Madhya Pradesh, Rahul Gandhi addressed a rally in Rewa today, where he repeated the same lies that he is been saying for last several weeks.

Rahul Gandhi said that during the UPA regime, the government had done a deal to buy Rafale jets at the price of ₹536 crore per plane, and NDA government is buying the same fighter for ₹1600 crore. He also says that had HAL got the contract to build the planes, youths in India would have got jobs.

Now we want to ask, where are those Rafale jets that UPA government bought at an excellent price of ₹536 crore? During the term of 10 years of the Congress-led government, how many fighter jets were bought? Why the fleet of Indian Air Force is reduced to just 32 squadrons when the requirement is of 42 squadrons?

If UPA government had finalised the deal with Dassault, why the deal was not completed? After selection of Dassault as the winner of the tender, why the process did not proceed further? Dassault refused to take responsibility for jets made by HAL, what does Rahul Gandhi has to say about that? Dassault had formed a joint venture with Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance and not Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defence. Why Rahul Gandhi is ignoring that? Dassault had won the bid for the MMRCA contract in January 2012 itself, what happened in two years after that before the 2014 elections?

Rahul Gandhi says had HAL got the contract, youths would have got jobs. Now several companies, both public sector and private sector, including HAL, BEL, DRDO etc, have got offset contracts for the Rafale deal. These private and public companies do not employ people? Only HAL provides employment opportunity to youths?

Does Rahul Gandhi want to say that Anil Ambani is going to build the jets himself and Dassault-Reliance JV will not employ any worker? What is this obsession with HAL, a company that is struggling to make the LCA for 30 years, that Rahul Gandhi wants that the company should get every contract in India, should make everything, shoes, shirts and mobile phones included? DRDO has got one-third of the offset business in the Rafale deal, including vital technology transfer. Is DRDO not a public sector unit? Does DRDO not employ people?

Why is DRDO bad and HAL good? Why is Anil Ambani bad but Mukesh Ambani good?

Why is Rahul Gandhi telling so many lies? Why does he keep repeating them?

Too many questions.
