राफॅल करारावेली याचिका सुप्रीम कोर्टान माल्ली भायर

The Supreme Court on Friday ruled out that there is nothing wrong with Rafale deal.

State BJP held a press conference on the issue. Former BJP MLA Subhash Phaldessai argued that the BJP lost in 5 states because Rafale deal was projected as a big scandal.

Since Supreme Court has now given clean chit to the deal, he claims BJP would win all these five states for Lok Sabha election.

The deal was to purchase 36 Rafale fighter jets.

The ruling came after four petitions were filed asking the Supreme Court to set up a court-monitored probe into the signing of the Rafale deal.

The opposition Congress had also alleged that Modi government had purchased these jets at higher prices and the local contract was fraudulently given to Reliance defense.
