Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has facilitated loot in the Rafale deal as according to a media report he had removed the anti-corruption clause from the controversial fighter jet deal.
Every Defence deal has an anti-corruption clause. The Hindu has reported that the Prime Minister removed the anti-corruption clause. It is clear that the Prime Minister facilitated loot, said Rahul earlier on Monday.
However, the UPA government in 2013 had come up with a new policy which allowed the Defence Ministry not to follow the laid down rules and sign inter-governmental agreements with friendly foreign countries as per mutually agreed provisions between both sides.
