Supreme Court's verdict On RafaleThe top court of India today given its verdict on the Rafale Jet deal. Supreme court gave a clean chit to the Modi led government saying that there is no reason to doubt the process of making the decision in this particular issue. The verdict is a massive validation for the NDA government. The opposition parties in general and the Congress, in particular, are accusing the government saying that there is big corruption in this deal. The Rs,59000 crore deal is for the purchase of 36 jets. It was alleged that the government has gone for a higher price to help Ambanis to bag an offset contract from Rafel. The court also said that there is no evidence in this to say that the government has shown commercial favouritism to a private entity.
This is a good news for the Modi supporters and difficult to digest for the others. Anyhow the reputation Modi is having as an uncorrupted leader strengthed with this verdict.
