Congress has claimed massive irregularities in the Rafale deal.
The Modi government's "boat of corruption" will not sail anymore, Congress said Wednesday after the Supreme Court asked the Center for pricing on the 36 Rafale jets India buys from France.
A three-man bank, chaired by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, asked for prices in a sealed envelope within 10 days, but agreed that "strategic and confidential" information need not be disclosed.
"Modi-government corruption boat will no longer sail because Supreme Courts want to know the truth about Rafale The corrupt BJP government can no longer remain under investigation, the defendant can no longer escape a GPA (parliamentary committee) Said the spokesman for the Congress chief Randeep Surjewala the reporters.
"Dear Prime Minister, please explain to the" People's Court "why you are now shying away from the GPA investigation – Rafale Scam is now ripe for an investigation – no more excuses!" Mr. Surjewala added a tweet.
The congress had alleged massive irregularities in the Rafale deal. The government had purchased each plane for more than Rs. 1,670 rupees from the UPA government compared to Rup's Rs. 526,000 when it negotiated an agreement for the procurement of 126 Rafale fighters.
Congress has targeted the government to select Reliance Defense as an offset partner for Dassault.
The government has vehemently rejected the allegations, claiming that it has played no role in selecting Reliance Defense.
