Congress angry because it could not make money, counters BJP’s Patra | India News – Times of India


Hitting out at Congress for alleging corruption in the Rafale deal, BJP on Sunday said Congress is angry because they were deprived the opportunity to take commission in the deal for the fighter jets. Speaking after Congress accused the Modi government of corruption, BJP said the opposition party has been hurling abuses, in what was seen as a reference to Rahul Gandhi’s jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “It is because Gandhis were denied the commission?” asked BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra.
“Congress should answer as to why for 10 years, despite a depleted squadron strength of the Indian Air Force, its government didn’t procure the much-needed Rafael fighter planes? Is it they did not get their desired ‘commission’?” Patra questioned. He said the pricing, procedures of procurement and all other aspects of the deal have been examined by the CAG and Supreme Court. “In India, the ‘verdict’ is out of the highest epitome of justice. Congress’ accusations sound hollow and carry no water,” Patra said, alleging that Congress is “blatantly lying” about a tender during their regime.
He said it is astounding that yet again the Congress has taken the “abuse” way. “It followed the same strategy of abusing PM Modi during the 2019 LS polls. We had then seen the fallout… if they still want to experiment with the dejected ‘toolkit’ they are welcome… the people of the country will give a befitting reply to Rahul Gandhi and Congress,” he further said.
“If there was a tender during the UPA regime, then why was the fighter jet not procured,” he alleged.
