Lies of ‘Mahajhootbandhan’ on Rafale stands exposed, says Arun Jaitley

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday said that the lies of the Congress and Opposition parties stand exposed by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report on Rafale, which reaffirms the dictum that truth shall prevail.

“Satyameva Jayate” – the truth shall prevail. The CAG Report on Rafale reaffirms the dictum,” Jaitley tweeted.

The CAG report on Rafale, tabled in the Rajya Sabha, said that the deal negotiated by the NDA in 2016 was 2.86 per cent cheaper than what was negotiated by the UPA in 2007.

The finance Minister further said that It cannot be that the Supreme Court is wrong, the CAG is wrong and only the dynast is right.

Jaitley said, the CAG report outlines that 2016 deal terms were lower in terms of price, faster in terms of delivery, while ensuring better maintenance and lower escalation.

“2016 vs. 2007 terms – Lower price, faster delivery, better maintenance, lower escalation,” Jaitley said.

“The lies of ‘Mahajhootbandhan’ stand exposed by the CAG Report. How does democracy punish those who consistently lied to the nation?” Jaitley questioned in the tweet
