The main Opposition party, the Congress is continuously targeting the Central Government on the Rafael aircraft deal.Now Indian Air Force Breaks Silence On Rafale Controversy; Vice Chief Of IAF Says Critics ‘don’t Have Information’ And ‘Rafale Is A Beautiful Aircraft’.
Air Marshal Shirish Baban Deo, the Vice Chief of Air Staff of the Indian Air Force said the following things about Rafale deal: “Actually, I shouldn’t comment but I can tell you… all this discussion and all these things going on in Rafale, it is because we know a lot about how everything went, we find that, people don’t have the information, okay. And, I shouldn’t be, you know, speaking. I am not authorised to volunteer information, so we just lump it. And these kind of things are not … we are just waiting for the aircraft to come. It is a beautiful aircraft. Very, very capable aircraft and it is a capability that we need very quickly.”
He further said, “I have said what I have said. I think I have made myself very clear. You just have to read the DPP, to know about offsets and things like that to say what is what, that’s it.”
on the question of the private sector being ‘favoured’ vis-a-vis the public sector, He said, “I do … I personally do. The Airforce policy is that anything that comes to us quickly and money stays in the country, that is what is, you know, required. It doesn’t really … it is not necessary to know whether the money is with the DPSU (Defence PSU) or the money is with the private company, as long as money stays in the country, and investments are in the country and the aircraft come out quickly, why should we refuse it?”
Here is the statement of IAF vice chief Air Marshal Shirish Baban Deo:
The IAF chief BS dhanoa has also said about the Rafale deal earlier that “Rafale Deal is not overpriced”. it is negotiated price of Aircraft so there should not be any controversy regarding the Rafale Deal. Infact current price of Rafale deal is less than the previous deal which was done by congress govt. In this deal France is giving 50% offset top India and I think Modi govt has signed a good deal in this MMRCA deal.
IAF chief BS dhanoa Statement regarding Rafale deal:
now the question is that why congress is raising question against govt ragarding this MMRCA deal after clear statement of IAF chief and vice chief. Is congress playing political game in the defence too? now you have to decide after listening all these statements by Indian Air Force Officials.
Congress party is highlighting the rafale scam by doing seminar in many places:
