launched an offensive against the BJP government over the
Rafale deal, alleging corruption and violation of rules by
Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

At a time the opposition led by the Congress is
mounting attacks on the government over the Rafale fighter jet
issue, NCP chief Sharad Pawar has said people “do not have
doubts” over Prime Minister Narendra
Modi’s intentions. In an interview to a Marathi news
channel, former Defence Minister Pawar also said the
opposition’s demand to share technical details relating to the
fighter jet “made no sense”. He, however, said there was no
harm for the government to disclose prices of the aircraft.

“I don’t think people have doubts about Modi’s intentions
personally,” Pawar told the news channel. He, however, said the
way Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the
government’s side led to confusion in the minds of people.
“Now, (Union Finance Minister Arun) Jaitley can be seen
articulating (government’s stand) on the issue (instead of
Sitharaman),” he added.

The Congress has launched an offensive against the BJP
government over the Rafale deal, alleging corruption and
violation of rules by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It has
accused the government of causing loss to the public exchequer
and endangering national security by bypassing state-run
Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) in favour of some
businessman “friends” for offset contract.
