The Prime Minister was also informed about progressing towards the targets for rural electrification and household electrification.
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi with Congress leaders Motilal Vohra and Randeep Surjewala and others in New Delhi on Thursday. "I want to ask you, why don't you question Prime Minister Modi who changed the entire Rafale deal to help a businessman?" he asked. Why don't you ask about Amit Shah's son?
At a press meet after he attended a meeting of the newly-formed All India Unorganised Workers' Congress at the AICC headquarters, Rahul did not take questions from mediapersons. I will happily answer whatever questions you ask me... but the Prime Minister who changed the entire Rafale deal to help a businessman... why don't you ask him about that... Why don't you ask Modiji about the Rafale deal? "Self "Reliance" is obviously a critical aspect of "Make in India", he added.
"They are finding it hard to accept that there has been no case of corruption in the three-year rule of the Narendra Modi government,"said Mr Prasad".
The Congress had on Tuesday alleged that the 36 Rafale aircraft are being bought at an "inflated price" and claimed the government had gone ahead with the deal without the transfer of technology.
Regarding the Congress question as to why did the Prime Minister promote the interests of one industrial group- Reliance Defence Limited, which has led to the company tying up and entering into a joint venture with Dassault Aviation, the RLD said that the Joint Venture between Reliance Aerostructure Ltd and Dassault Aviation is a bilateral agreement between two private companies and Dassault Aviation selected Reliance Aerostructure Ltd as its joint venture partner.
Once this deal was scrapped on July 30, 2016, a new $ 8.7 billion dollar deal was signed on September 23 previous year.
Reliance Defence, in a statement, called allegations "baseless and unfounded" and asked the Congress to correct its facts or face legal action.
Reliance Defence Limited had issued a statement reacting to the charges.
"Reliance Group does not have any company by the name of Reliance Defence & Aerospace Ltd. Dassault Reliance Aerospace Ltd will be only one of the key players in the discharge of offset obligations".
