While Congress Alleges HAL Ignored In Rafale Deal, Kharge-Led Panel Says Its Poor Performance Poses ‘Security Threat’


Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge headed parliamentary committee has lashed out on Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for its failure to make the required delivery of Tejas aircraft to the Indian air force (IAF) and has cited this as adversely affecting combat potential of IAF and a serious ‘security threat’ for the country.

“The committee is disappointed to note that the failure of HAL/ADA (Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) and the Ministry of Defence to provide the required number of aircraft has adversely affected the combat potential of the IAF resulting in security threat to the country,” said a report by the Kharge-led 22 member panel as reported by Hindustan Times.

The Tejas is a single engine light combat aircraft, which has been developed indigenously, and therefore provides a cost-effective alternative to costly defence imports.Read More
