Prime News, National (New Delhi), August 9:- Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has alleged that the Opposition is trying to malign the Narendra Modi government by presenting fabricated facts regarding the India-France Rafale fighter jet deal.
The Defence Minister said this while responding to the Opposition’s charge that ”the Rafale deal was a case of monumental criminal misconduct by the NDA government and the scam involving it is much bigger than the Bofors scandal.”
The charges were made by former Union ministers Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie on Wednesday. The two also demanded a time-bound probe into the Rafale deal by national auditor CAG. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
