Rafale deal: Will move court when we get documents, says Kapil Sibal

Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal Sunday claimed the Narendra Modi government did not have answers in the Rafale fighter jet deal and his party would wait for getting the necessary documents before moving court on the matter.

The Congress has been relentlessly attacking the NDA government over its deal with Dassault Aviation to buy 36 fighter aircraft, with the opposition party claiming the cost per aircraft was about three times higher when compared to the one inked by the previous UPA government.

“The Rafale deal is a big scam to which the Modi government does not have any answer. This deal was struck overlooking the provisions of the Aircraft Procurement Policy.
“The External Affairs and Defence ministries were not taken into consideration before inking the deal,” Sibal told reporters here. Asked why the Congress was not moving court despite having renowned lawyers like himself and former Union minister P Chidambaram, Sibal said, “We won’t move the court until we get necessary documents in the case.”
