Rafale Scam in Modi Govt. Rahul Gandhi Meets HAL Employees

Congress president Rahul Gandhi today met the employees of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), the Indian state-owned aerospace and defence company that lost the business because of corruption in Rafale deal.

He said in a media interaction after the meeting with HAL employees that PM Narendra Modi is so corrupt that he is destroying every strategic institution – including HAL – to help his friend Anil Ambani, Reliance Group chairman, who is getting the Rafale contract without any experience in the aerospace industry.

As the controversy surrounding the Rafale deal refuses to slow down, the case has now reached India’s top investigating agency Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Former BJP ministers Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie, and lawyer-activist Prashant Bhushan have filed a complaint with the CBI, urging the agency to register an FIR against PM Modi and former defence minister Manohar Parrikar.

The complaint alleges that Modi and Parrikar have committed a number of offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act, in the course of the April 2015 decision to purchase 36 Rafale aircraft from Dassault Aviation. The complaint was handed over to Alok Verma, director of the CBI, last Thursday.
