Re: VayuSena Rafale: News and Discussions - 17 Oct 2016

They will still stall parliament, create a ruckus, use sold out media and presstitutes to push for a JPC on the rafale deal. This is being funded from outside by someone looking to scuttle the deal and force a re-tender and also de throne Modi. two birds with one stone. Also, the pakis desperately ...

Re: VayuSena Rafale: News and Discussions - 17 Oct 2016

Guys, has this been discussed yet, but Pappu and his propaganda machine are claiming that SC used a non-existent CAG report to come to some of their conclusions. Does this have any validity?
