Supreme Court orders that there should be no further investigation on Rafale deal
December 15, 2018
The Supreme Court of India (SC) has finally passed its verdict on Rafale Deal. SC said that an investigation is not required into the deal for the 36 Rafale fighter jet planes that Indian government purchased from France. The central government run by the BJP can now breathe a sigh of relief after being under constant scanner and criticism over Rafale deal.
According to a batch of pleas that were filed on 14 November, SC was asked to monitor investigations on the deal. But the judges headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said that there is no reason for intervention by the government over the deal. The judges also added the court has no right to look into the financial details as it is confidential information and cannot be revealed to the public.
There were mixed reactions on social media.
Huge victory for govt in #RafaleDeal. SC clears deal, no detailed scrutiny, no corruption, tells petitioners not to misuse SC with such PILs, @RahulGandhi's allegations binned. Big defeat for Cong/opp and its proxies-Minhaz Merchant
The Rs 59,000 crore Rafale deal had created quite a stir in Indian politics with the Congress criticising the BJP over fraudulence in the deal.
"The #Rafale verdict is correct the Congress should fight a political battle on the issue with Bjp. Can't expect the SC to join issue. Call for a JPC & keep up the pressure for a investigation on the choice of partner", tweeted Swati Chaturvedi.
The Rafale fighter is a twin-engine Medium Multi Role Combat Aircraft that has been manufactured by French aerospace company Dassault Aviation.
