Dassault aviation clarifies; Says Indian govt had no hand in choosing partners

India's Modi faces calls for resignation over French jet deal

"We didn't have a say on the subject".

"Dassault negotiated with (Anil) Ambani". We did not have the choice. "We did not have a choice, we took the interlocutor who was given to us", said Hollande.

"We did not have a say in this", Hollande was quoted by the website as saying. "More broadly, the possibility of New Delhi doing a favor for a pro-government corporate titan in the high-stakes, big-money world of arms sales - the optics are awful, and the reputational costs for the government could be considerable".

Mediapart, a subscription-based online journal, is published by Edwy Plenel, who was the editor-in-chief of the widely respected Le Monde. "Dassault Aviation and Reliance have built a plant in Nagpur for manufacturing parts for Falcon and Rafale aircraft", the company said in a statement. In this framework, and in accordance with the policy of Make in India, Dassault Aviation has decided to make a partnership with India's Reliance Group. Hollande was the chief guest at the Republic Day Parade that year.

Rashtriya Janata Dal national spokesperson Manoj Kumar Jha also tweeted about Hollande's statement, saying he was waiting for Arun Jaitley to come out with more "brazen lies" to defend the deal. The Centre has repeatedly stated it was Dassault that chose its India partner for offsets and that the government had no say in the deal.

Attacking the BJP over Rafale deal, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram said, "In the NDA negotiated Rafale aircraft deal, we have got no aircraft, we have got only lies".

Self-preservation may have been his motive.

The statement further read, "This contract is a government-to-government agreement. He must clarify", Gandhi said.

Rosenstein Wanted to Record, Oust Trump
Rosenstein was under tremendous pressure from Congress to show that both he and the entire Justice Department had not caved to political pressure from the White House.

You lied on the Rafale deal.

"Defence Minister has been called out again!"

The Defence Ministry said in a tweet, the French media report was being verified.

Even as the French government and Dassault Aviation contradicted former president Francois Hollande's bombshell that the Indian government proposed Anil Ambani's Reliance Defence as the India partner for the multi-million dollar Rafale deal, Congress president Rahul Gandhi kept up his attack on PM Narendra Modi and said he had "betrayed India's soul".

"In accordance with India's acquisition procedure, French companies have the full freedom to choose their Indian partner companies that they consider to be the most relevant, then present for the Indian government's approval the offset projects that they wish to execute in India with these local partners so as to fulfil their obligations in this regard". Modi Ji you dishonoured the blood of our martyred soldiers.

In April 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced in Paris that India would buy the French fighter jets under a government-to-government deal.

Calling the Rafale deal corrupt, Rahul Gandhi underlined "PM Modi is corrupt" and asked the Prime Minister to break his silence over the deal.

"Cat's out of the Bag!"
