Former French president Francois Hollande's comment that the Indian government had proposed Anil Ambani's Reliance Defence as the India partner in the Rafale jet deal giving no choice has created a political controversy in the country.

The Congress took to Twitter to slam Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) claims on the Reliance-Dassault tie-up, calling them a “web of lies”.


This is what senior advocate Prashant Bhushan had to say.

In the meantime, the Principal Spokesperson, Ministry of Defence, Government of India tweeted that neither Indian nor French government had any role to play in the commercial decision.

Rahul Gandhi, who has been attacking the BJP Govt over the Rafale deal from long time, got yet another opportunity to slam the Modi government. Rahul took to twitter saying “The PM personally negotiated & changed the #Rafale deal behind closed doors. Thanks to François Hollande, we now know he personally delivered a deal worth billions of dollars to a bankrupt Anil Ambani.

The PM has betrayed India. He has dishonoured the blood of our soldiers.”
