Rahul Gandhi uses a case where Anil Ambani was represented by Kapil Sibal to further lies about the Modi govt and Indian armed forces

Rahul Gandhi shared a report involving Anil Ambani, which was completely unrelated to the Rafale deal, to claim that the Narendra Modi government had given the businessman the mythical figure of Rs. 30,000 crores that he keeps quoting.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who is known to be a habitual liar, politicized the Pulwama Terror Attack in a distasteful manner on Thursday. He shared a report involving Anil Ambani, which was completely unrelated to the Rafale deal, to claim that the Narendra Modi government had given the businessman the mythical figure of Rs. 30,000 crores that he keeps quoting. While the lies of Rahul Gandhi have become the central focus of his 2019 campaign, using Pakistan sponsored Pulwama terror attack to further the lies is a new low.

Firstly, Rahul Gandhi lied about the Modi government denying the status of ‘shaheed’.

According to the government, there is no official designation of ‘martyr’. For anybody. Whether from the regular Armed Forces, the paramilitary forces or anybody else. The word ‘martyr’ might appear in everyday communication for sure, but there is no official definition on the books anywhere. This was again clarified by the government in 2017 in response to an RTI request.

Secondly, Rahul Gandhi claimed that Anil Ambani will live “happily ever after” while Jawans are “denied the status of “Shaheed” and their families struggle.

In reality, the report that Rahul Gandhi mentioned was talking about the Reliance Telecom-Ericsson case. And ironically, Ambani was represented in the court by Rahul’s close aide and senior Congress leader, Kapil Sibal, himself.

Thus, Rahul Gandhi is using a case to target the Narendra Modi government that has absolutely nothing to do with the Rafale deal and shamefully politicizes the suffering the family of the martyrs are going through even as one of the senior-most leaders of his own party defends Ambani in the Court.

As we have reported earlier, the Supreme Court had ordered, Anil Ambani, to pay back the dues that are owed to Ericsson and recently was served a contempt notice for failing to do the same within the stipulated time frame.

Contrary to Rahul’s claims of Rs. 30,000 crores given to Anil Ambani, the actual numbers are much much lower. In reality, Dassault Aviation has set up a 51:49 joint venture with Reliance Defence for manufacturing parts for Falcon civilian jet, and the total investment in that venture is ₹800 crore. Which means the investment of Dassault in that venture is less than ₹400 crore. Majority of offset business will go to public sector companies in the defence sector, including DRDO.

Not too long ago, Rahul had also made deplorable remarks about air crashes where members of the Indian Air Force had lost their lives. He had said in a press conference, in a display of unparalleled insensitivity, while referring to the dissent note of Deputy Secretary (Air-II) of the defence ministry which was published in cropped form by The Hindu, that the mythical Rs. 30,000 crores could be given to IAF members when they died in air crashes.

Despite the fact that his claims have been regularly proven to be false, Rahul Gandhi has continued to lie on the matter without an ounce of shame. And with ‘pliant journalists’ by his side, he has shown no signs of stopping anytime soon.
