Congress president Rahul Gandhi today slammed the government on the Rafale deal. Hitting out at the Centre during a debate in Lok Sabha on the issue, he took on the government with a number of issues on the pact. Attacking the Narendra Modi Government, he said, \u201c Earlier the deal with the French Government was for 126 Rafale aircraft. Who changed the deal to 36? Who changed the requirement of Indian Air Force (IAF)? Did something changed with regard to the security of the country?\u201d \u201c Earlier an excuse was given that the country needs aircraft urgently. If this was the case, why not a single aircraft reached the country? When the then defence minister Manohar Parrikar was asked about the deal, he said he had no idea,\u201d the Congress president added. Taking on the government on the pricing of the deal, Rahul Gandhi asked, \u201cWhy pricing changed from Rs 526 crore to 1600 crore? Why contract was taken away from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and given to Anil Ambani?\u201d He also praised the HAL's contribution in the development of the country, saying it had been building aircraft for 70 years. \u201cHAL has been aircraft for 70 years. It has a tremendous record and gives jobs thousands of men.\u201d Rahul also sought to play an audio tape released by the Congress earlier in the day. The demand was rejected by Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan as it had not been authenticated. Congress had claimed today that Manohar Parrikar has all files related to the agreement \u201cin his bedroom\u201d. The Congress while releasing an audio tape, purportedly of a discussion between Goa Cabinet minister Vishwajit Rane and an unknown person, the former is heard referring to an \u201cinteresting statement\u201d by CM Parrikar. \u201cThe Chief Minister made an interesting statement\u2026.that \u201cI have all the information on Rafale in my bedroom.\u201d This means that he is holding them to ransom,\u201d Rane is apparently heard saying in the tape. Goa Minister Vishwajit P Rane writes to Goa CM Manohar Parrikar in regard with the audio tape released by Congress on Rafale, states, "This is a doctored audio & I have never had any discussion on this subject with anyone. there should be a thorough inquiry in this matter" pic.twitter.com\/OVHkYOHtfz \u2014 ANI (@ANI) January 2, 2019 While releasing the tape, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala, said as per ANI, \u201cFormer Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has the all the files relating to Rafale jet deal. The fashion in which every procedure was bypassed.it is all recorded in the files. Those files are with Mr Parrikar. Why are those files being hidden?\u201d Meanwhile, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar tweeted, \u201c The audio clip released by the Congress party is a desperate attempt to fabricate facts after their lies were exposed by the recent Supreme Court verdict on Rafale. No such discussion ever came up during Cabinet or any other meeting."
