The case of the Rafale deal saw some closure on Friday when the supreme court ruled the verdict in the favour of the government. However, the heat between the two parties does not look to end soon with the Congress questioning the basis of the decision made by the supreme court. According to Times Now news, the opposition party has accused the government of misleading the court about the important report related to this big deal.

Why the tension?

The Supreme court had dismissed all the petitions regarding Rafale deal on Friday. The basis of the decision was that the government assured the court that the details regarding the deal were shared with the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), who forwarded the report to the Public Accounts Committee(PAC). However, according to the opposition party, the report has not been seen by anyone in the PAC department, making the report available in the public domain.
Congress has accused the government of not submitting any such report ever and believe that the are covering up a huge fraud. Mallikarjun Kharge, who chairs the PAC claims to have seen no such report. Congress President Rahul Gandhi did not keep quite on this matter and demanded the report to be released if it exists in the first place. “Where is the CAG report? Show us? Maybe it was shown to the France parliament? Maybe PM Modi has his own PAC in PMO since he has destroyed every institution,” Rahul lashed as reported by NDTV.

Response from the government

In response to these allegations, the government has responded saying that the there has been a misinterpretation of the language used in the affidavit filed earlier. Now in the new affidavit filed by them, the government claims to have only mentioned the process of filing the report. This recent development in the case seems to indicate that the whole case has not found closure yet.
