Congress slammed by CAG!!! Says “Will proceed with Rafale case only if you have concrete proof, can’t go by allegations”

Lies never long last. Truth will prevail one day for sure. How hard Congress keeps on trying to spread lies and lay baseless allegations on PM Modi Government regarding Rafale, fuel prices and other things it will not be able to divert the people of nation and will be tightly slapped on face.

Facing the heat of one such moment, Congress is slammed hard by The Comptroller Auditor and General for the lies party and its president Rahul Gandhi is propagating on Rafale deal.

The CAG said that Congress party has no concrete proof regarding the Rafale deal and is just making statements and allegations against the Centre.

The delegation of senior Congress leaders approached the CAG and urged him to carry out a forensic audit of the “Rs 60,150 crore” Rafale fighter jet deal and bring all “facts” on record to enable Parliament to fix accountability for the alleged scam in the contract.

But the CAG made it absolutely clear to Congress leaders. He clearly stated that forensic audit could not be carried out as there is no proof and only on the basis of allegations the proceedings can’t be done

Within a month Congress has approached the CAG second time over the Rafale deal issue and presented a memorandum to him along with fresh documents. Not only CAG but also approached Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) to probe into the matter.

According to documents submitted by the Congress party before CAG. The Congress alleged that documents and revelations made at the highest level in India and France have “exposed a deep rooted sinister conspiracy and a clear cut case of loss to public exchequer”.

“The Rafale Scam has now emerged as India’s Biggest ‘Defence Scam’. Skeletons are tumbling out of the closet everyday with repeated disclosures getting zero answers from the Defence Ministry. In fact, the only ‘Truth’ of this Government is ‘Subterfuge’. The stench of ‘Corruption’ and ‘Cronyism’ in the Rafale Deal is nauseating, requiring urgent intervention,” the Congress memorandum said.

The party also alleged that the government is “unforgivably guilty” of causing loss to the public exchequer worth Rs 41,205 crore in the purchase of 36 ‘Made in France’ Rafale aircrafts, ‘off the shelf’ without ‘Transfer of Technology’.

It also alleged that in a classic case of blatant ‘crony capitalism’, private entity Reliance Defence was deliberately enriched by award of a Rs 30,000- crore offset contract at the cost of Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government.

“The above facts reflect a clear-cut case of loss to public exchequer and rampant corruption coupled with a concerted conspiracy of by-passing PSU, HAL. It also reveals illegal and undue benefit to ‘crony friends’ by the highest echelons of power in the Modi Government, in the unilateral purchase of 36 Rafale Jets from Dassault Aviation i.e India’s biggest ever defence contract worth Rs 60,150 Crore,” it said.

The party told the CAG that all the contours of conspiracy, corruption, endangering of national security and crony capitalism can only be uncovered thorough a probe by the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC).

“It is expected that the CAG which has a Constitutional mandate and authority to scrutinize every document, in this case including original tender, understanding reached between Dassault and HAL and the arbitrary decision of the Prime Minister without any mandate from Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) will undertake a forensic audit.

“We therefore request the CAG to bring all facts on record to enable the Parliament to fix accountability for Rafale scam,” the Congress memorandum said.

The Congress leaders who were part of the delegation to CAG included Ahmed Patel, Anand Sharma, Jairam Ramesh, Randeep Surjewala, RPN Singh and Vivek Tankha.

The Congress party left no stone unturned to give hue to the fake Rafale allegations. But this will not get Congress party anywhere in fact it will dig their grave deeper
