Lies of 'mahajhootbandhan' stand exposed: Arun Jaitley
New Delhi, Feb 13 : 'The lies of 'Mahajhootbandhan' stand exposed by the CAG Report', said Union Minister Arun Jaitley soon after the CAG report on Rafale being tabled in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.
Comparing the two deals during the UPA and NDA government, he further added: 2016 vs. 2007 terms - Lower price, faster delivery, better maintenance, lower escalation.
He also criticised Congress for raising questions over the Supreme Court verdict on Rafale and said, It cannot be that the Supreme Court is wrong, the CAG is wrong and only the dynast is right.
How does democracy punish those who consistently lied to the nation? added Jaitley.
Earlier in the day, the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) in its report tabled in Parliament had said that compared to the deal for procurement of 126 fighter aircraft, India managed to save 17.08 per cent of money for the India-specific enhancements in the contract for the acquisition of 36 Rafale planes.
It also said that the delivery schedule of the first 18 Rafale aircraft is better than the one proposed in the 126 aircraft deal, by five months.
