OP's Perspective

In September 2016, India signed an inter-governmental agreement with France, dubbed as "Rafale deal", in which India bought 36 off-the-shelf Dassault Rafale twin-engine fighters for a price estimated to be Rs. 58,000 crore or 7.8 billion Euros.

The Congress has accused the Modi government of "compromising" national security and causing a loss of over Rs. 12,000 crore to the taxpayer with its deal to buy 36 French Rafale fighter jets.

Opposition led by congress is projecting this deal as a major scam by BJP government.
