A replica of the Rafale jet has been erected outside the residence of Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa in Delhi. Coincidentally, his residence is right next to Congress headquarters.

The Air Force Chief has great admiration for the Rafale aircraft. During the huge controversy around the Rafale Deal, he had commended its capabilities. “When Rafales come in, our air defence capabilities will enhance manifold, and Pakistan will be deterred from lingering around the border and the LoC with the kind of capabilities we will possess, for which they don’t have an answer,” BS Dhanoa had said.
As for the Congress party itself, the replica will serve as a continuous reminder of the monumental failure of their party president Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai‘ slogan. The Congress president’s sister appears to still believe that his party would have succeeded in defeating Narendra Modi had the senior leaders of his party chanted ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ just one more time with more conviction.

However, it does appear that basing their entire campaign around the Rafale Deal proved to be rather costly for the Congress party. That a replica of the aircraft has now come up next to their headquarters makes one wonder if the Wheels of Fate themselves are having a laugh at the expense of the Congress party’s misfortune.
