PM should answer if Rafale deal meant to strengthen IAF or industrialist: Shiv Sena


The Shiv Sena Saturday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should answer whether the Rafale deal was meant to strengthen the Air Force or a financially-troubled industrialist.

The party’s remarks came after a report in The Hindu newspaper Friday claimed that the Defence Ministry had raised strong objections to “parallel discussions” conducted by the PMO during the negotiations over the Rs 59,000 crore Rafale deal between India and France.

The Sena, in an editorial in its mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ said Modi gave a speech on “patriotism” in Parliament on Thursday and defended the deal.
