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

They can say what they want, but as long as the SC gives the clean chit on the following, the Modi Govt is in the clear; 1) Acqusition procedure was followed 2) Pricing was accurate as advised 3) No evidence of cronyism in offset If those three are in favour of Govt, the opposition and their minion...

Ajai Shukla with an atrogant smirk on his face seems he has supposedly ‘nailed govt’s lie’ on pricing. But he won’t reveal his sources though. But govt must release all detals :-). As I expected, SC has thrown Pappu & Co a few dog bones, one of which is this letter of sovereign guarantee or lack...
