If we had Rafale jets, we need not have entered Pakistan to attack them, claims Rajnath Singh


Reiterating what PM Modi had said earlier, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday claimed that had our defence forces had the Rafale jet from before, they would not have to enter Pakistan.

In an apparent attack on the previous UPA government which was the first to engage in talks with the French government to buy Rafale fighter jets in 2013-2014, Singh said, “If we had the Rafale fighter jets, in my opinion, we would not have had to send our jawans to Pakistan.”

Speaking at a rally in Lucknow from where he is contesting the Lok Sabha elections, Rajnath Singh also said, “Rafale jets can attack the neighbouring countries even when they are stationed in the Indian territory.”

In days after the Pulwama terror attack and the Balakot airstrike, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was the chief guest at the India Today Conclave 2019, had made a similar remark and said that if India had Rafale jets in its fleet, Pulwama would never have happened.

On March 2, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the country is feeling the absence of Rafale fighter jets. Read More
