In an attempt to turn the alleged scam in the Rafale deal into the focal point of its campaign for the 2019 Lok Sabha election, the Congress has decided to hold demonstrations from the district to State levels demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee investigation. This was decided at a meeting of Congress Legislature Party leaders, State unit chiefs and All India Congress Committee (AICC) office-bearers, chaired by Congress president Rahul Gandhi. The Congress has alleged that the Rafale deal has caused a loss of over Rs. 41,000 crore to the exchequer. “A company belonging to a friend of the Prime Minister has been given a contract worth Rs. 30,000 crore, after snatching it from Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL), a public company. It was decided that the corruption scams of the Modi government, particularly the Rafale aircraft scam, will be taken to the people of India,” Mr. Surjewala added.
