#ModiAmbaniRafaleScam: Thread which simplifies the Rafale Scam.

When Indian Air Force needed 126 Fighter Jets, why did Modi only signed for 36? Does it not compromise National Security? 1/

Why was NO prior Cabinet approval taken before ordering the Rafale jets by Modi? Why did Modi signed on the Biggest Defence Deal in India without a Cabinet Approval? Why was Manohar Parikkar not taken into loop? 2/

Per aircraft price of 126 Rafales as per international bid opened on 12.12.12 during UPA Govt, comes to ₹526Cr per aircraft

At this price, 36 aircrafts would have costed ₹18,940Cr

But Modi got 36 jets for ₹60,145 Cr i.e ₹1670 Cr per aircraft.
Why? 3/

Why did Modi pay ₹1144Cr per aircraft for Rafale Jets?

All these costs are NOW public in Rafale's own Annual Report & by Reliance itself. So What is Sitharaman hiding when she says,she cant reveal price?

No one asking for weaponry/strategic details! 4/

Congress-UPA ordered 126 Rafale jets with 'TRANSFER OF TECHNOLOGY' to Hindustan Aeronatics Limited (HAL) which has 60 years experience in manufacturing Aircrafts. 108 Aircrafts were to be MADE IN INDIA.

Why did Modi let go Transfer of Technology? 5/

Anil Ambani was in the delegation with PM which visited France in April 2015. No issues.

Just 12 days ago, he incorporated Reliance Defence Ltd. Then the Rs 30,000 Cr Offset Contract which was to be given to HAL- was handed over to him. Coincidence? 6/

BJP will tell you that the aircraft which Cong/UPA ordered didn't have India Specific Additions/Weaponry/Avionoics etc.

Thats a BIG LIE!

Modi ordered the same plane! Because UPA's RFP mentions a lot about them

Were we buying a fighter jet for JOYRIDE? 7/

Now what is the Offset Contract?In layman terms-It means that India will manufacture certain equipments of the plane in INDIA.This they will export to France;in turn it will create Jobs in India.

Modi gave this Contract to Reliance, instead of HAL! Why? 8/

In addition to Rs 30,000 Cr Contract to Reliance, Modi gave Rs 1 Lakh Cr 'Life Cycle Contract' to them as well. Reliance websites explicitly mentions it!

So Now Modi ji gave ₹ 1,30,000 Cr Contract to Reliance. Why? 9/

So Modi first paid ₹41,205 Cr for the 36 Rafale Jets and then gave ₹1,30,000 Cr Contract to his crony friend!

These two figures are at the core of the Rafale Scam!

He could have bought cheaper plane+ given contract to Govt's HAL. But he didnt. Why? 10/

Nirmala Sitharaman says that there is 'Secrecy Clause' in 2008 Agreement signed by the Congress-UPA with France.

Thats a LIE. If you read the agreement. There is NO bar on revealing Commercial Cost of the Deal! Another Lie! Why? 11/

Congress-UPA had disclosed the price of Dassault Aviation made MIRAGE aircraft, as also Sukhoi aircraft and other Defence purchases on the floor of the Parliament

So Nirmala saying that we cant reveal price is a Big Lie! 12/
Govt owned HAL entered into a work share agreement dated 13.03.2014 with Rafale-Dassault Aviation worth ₹ 36,000 Cr for ‘offset contract’ during UPA-Congress Govt. Why was this work share agreement annuled and Reliance given the contract? 13/

On 12 Feb, 2018 ;Sitharaman issued a Press Release saying that that ‘no offset contract has been awarded’


On 27 Oct 2017,French Def Minister,Ms Florence Parly went to MIHAN,Nagpur an laid stone of Dassault-Relience factory with Gadkari!14/
In Original invited tender by UPA-Congress, 2 fighter aircrafts were found equal on all technical fronts -Eurofighter Typhoon & Rafale. Rafale won the contract. But later, Eurofighter wrote to Jaitley saying they can sell in 20% less. Why No Fresh Tender?15/

Reliance Aerostructure Ltd was incorporated on 24th April, 2015 i.e 14 days after the announcement of purchase of 36 Rafale aircrafts by PM. That was given a license by Nirmala Sitharaman's Def Min. It had NO land of own at that time. Why was it given? 16/

This is the big picture (moti moti kahani) of Rafale Scam. There are numerous other things and Lies which Modi is covering up,which Congress party has highlighted from time to time.

This is just a simplified version

PS:We have Solid Docs for each charge
*₹1144 Cr More for Rafale Jets (Correction)
