Home Law Concerns for Congress to conspiracy theories: The liberal meltdown after Rafale verdict

Concerns for Congress to conspiracy theories: The liberal meltdown after Rafale verdict

The 3-member bench comprising of CJI Ranjan Gogoi, Justice SK Kaul and Justice KM Joseph stated that they have studied all the documents carefully and found no reason to initiate a court-monitored probe over the Rafale deal.

The Supreme Court of India has delivered its verdict dismissing all petitions on the Rafale deal. A three-judge bench of CJI Ranjan Gogoi, Justice SK Kaul and Justice KM Joseph today dismissed all the petitions filed demanding a court-monitored probe into the Rafale deal.

For months, the alleged irregularities in the purchase of Rafale jets have been a constant issue for the opposition leaders and many political and media persons to launch attacks on the present government. Despite repeated clarifications from the government of India, France, and even Dassault aviation, the makers of rafale, the attacks have never stopped.

All the claims and allegations made by the opposition and other critics in the Rafale deal with regard to decision making, pricing and specifications have been thoroughly denied and explained by Government, however, the claims had never stopped and even blatant lies and fake information have been repeatedly peddled regarding the Rafale deal.

After the SC today dismissed the multiple petitions by ML Sharma, AAP MP Sanjay Singh, Vineet Dhanda, Yashwant Sinha, Arun Shourie, and Prashant Bhushan, all the secular, liberal anti-Modi cabal, which has been crying hoarse over the deal and kept peddling baseless lies has begun a melt-down on social media.

From allegations that the SC is favouring Ambani-Adanis to claiming that the CJI is being manipulated by the PM, the liberal cabal is creating an all-around spectacle on Twitter today. Here are some choice outrages:

While ‘journalist’ Nikhil Wagle deduced that dismissing all petitions does not mean a clean chit, AAP leader Preeti Sharma hinted that the recent event when PM Narendra Modi was invited to a dinner hosted by CJI Ranjan Gogoi to honour the judges from BIMSTEC countries, is the reason behind today’s verdict, possibly implying that secret deals were discussed in the crowded and well-publicised dinner event.

Seema Chishti, however, was already thinking ahead:

Some journalists, who are often mistaken for Congress spokespersons for their prompt clarification on any issues involving Rahul Gandhi, were also quick to dissect this verdict from a Congress point of view.

The idea of another joint Parliamentary Committee to probe over the non-existent issue is sure to remind of another JPC the Congress leadership was involved in last year. After weeks of screaming over the NDA government’s alleged inability in handling the Doklam crisis, a JPC which had Shashi Tharoor and Rahul Gandhi as members had finally given a clean chit to the government after long sessions of the probe.

The Congress perspective over the pros and cons of the verdict was further clarified:

Congress has also stated now that they are not going to let the issue go and will continue their demand for a JPC probe, like Doklam.

‘Journalist’ Ashutosh Mishra also clarified that the Rafale issue was not an election issue in the recent assembly elections. He probably ignored that Congress President had mentioned Rafale in almost every speech and Congress leaders and IT cell had spent weeks trending ChowkidarChor on social media.

Also remarkable were the defences that Congress was not involved in the PILs on Rafale deal. Spectacularly ignoring that the Congress has made Rafale deal their main political agenda in the last few months, ‘Journalists’ carried on the party’s point of view on the issue.

When you cannot convince them, confuse them by sounding secretive. Owner of the AAP centric propaganda blog Janta Ka Reporter also claimed some clandestine knowledge behind the verdict.

All the facts behind the Rafale deal and offset clause that was deliberately ignored by the media and politicians to peddle baseless lies can be read here.
