The national security was totally compromised by Rahul Gandhi and his men in a failed attempt to project that there was a scam in Modi government’s Rafale deal. Luckily, for India, the dirty trick of Rahul Gandhi didn’t succeed. But if had, then the Indian Air Force would have been seriously affected.
Rahul Gandhi created a lot of cheap tricks and blatantly lied that the Rafale deal was grabbed from the hands of HAL and was handed over to France’s Dassualt Aviation. Now at the 10th Jumbo Majumdar international lecture organised by the Centre for Air Power Studies, the Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal B S Dhanoa has made such a statement that if Rahul Gandhi is left at least a pound of shame within himself, then he would stop mudslinging at India’s security issues.
We all know that Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is India’s best defence manufacturer but it has not met the expectations and several projects are still pending from its side. So the Air Staff Air Chief Marshal B S Dhanoa targeting HAL said “IAF has not shifted any goal posts as alleged. The development has taken such an incredibly long time that armament and technology has gone obsolete… I as the service chief can make concessions to Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL). Will the enemy make concessions to me when I go and meet the enemy?”.
He was angry with HAL’s delay in delivery and problems in manufacturing. Air Chief Marshal B S Dhanoa added, “We have lost 17 pilots and engineers in air accidents during testing and evaluation of the indigenous Marut, Kiran, Ajeet, Saras and early warning prototype aircraft”.
Even in the past when Rahul Gandhi was fooling that there was a scam in Rafale deal, the Air Chief had said that Rafale deal was a game changer for the Indian Air Force.
