Defence Minister Nirmala Seetharam today stated that Bofors was a scam and it sank the Congress Government earlier. But Rafales is a security measure and it will bring the Narendra Modi Government back she said. Making a statement in the parliament over the Rafales deal she found fault with Rahul for calling the PM thief. Rahul also called the defence minister a liar. She questioned Rahul if he has apologised to the PM after hugging him and winking in the parliament?
While the discussion was going on some members in the house flew paper planes and made fun of it. Speaker Sumitra Mahajan suspended some of them and objected to their unruly behaviour.
In response to this Rahul Gandhi replied that he has no doubts about Nirmala Seetha Raman the defence minister and accused PM Modi of being corrupt. He said that Modi has directly benefited Anil Ambani and did the deal on his own and even the defence officials were also left behind and not consulted. It is a direct one-sided decision by Moid to benefit Anil Ambani he charged.
Rs 45000 crore was looted by the deal Rahul charged.
