There is no doubt that the Rafale fighter jets will be a game changer when it comes to guarding the nation’s border. Now the chief of Indian Air Force has said that once the Rafale jet gets inducted to the Indian Air Force, Pakistan will not even dare to come closer to India’s border or the Line of Control (LoC).
IAF Chief reiterated that Rafale jets will the best combat aircraft in the Indian sub-continent and stated “When the Rafale comes in, it will ensure that the deterrence of our air defence will increase manifold and they (Pakistan) will not come anywhere near our Line of Control or border. That kind of capability we will possess for which presently they (Pakistan) don’t have an answer”.
Speaking on the date of delivery, he stated “We are going to get Rafale in the month of September. Rafale will give a tremendous jump to our capability and it is superior to all the aircraft in the inventory of both our adversaries”.
This statement should have had rattled the Pakistani Army and its terrorists. But hilariously the statement of IAF chief infact rattled none other than the Congress party. Yes, the party that claims to be an Indian political party.
Attacking the IAF chief, senior Congress leader Manish Tewari who is known for his abusive tweets said “I usually refrain from joining issues publicly with our people in uniform. Regrettably this statement by Air Chief Marshal Dhanoa is both politically loaded in election time and has implications on India’s current deterrence capabilities. Very Very avoidable”.
Rafale jets are being manufactured to enhance India’s safety. When Congress-led UPA was in power, its defence minister AK Antony had said that there’s no adequate fund to purchase the Rafale fighter jets but now when the Modi government expedited the purchase, Congress is getting rattled.
