1/As Modi govt claims, Negotiations with Rafale didn’t fail, but differences ironed out and Dassault and HAL signed a work share agreement.
As everyone claim, Dassault Reliance JV was not formed in 2016, but immediately after Modi’s announcement
My piece
thewire.in/government/nar… 2/ Modi’s Rafale Deal Time Line:
March 10, 2015 - Dassault Annual Results 2014 released. It says “the continuation of exclusive negotiations with the Indian authorities and Indian industrial partners to finalize the contract for the sale / licensing of 126 RAFALE,”

1/ Modi Govt, cabinet ministers, BJP spokespersons and party supporters, fake defence experts and spineless journalists are all speaking in the same voice and parroting the govt stand on #Rafale36. But Modi’s #Rafale36 deal is not just about the price escalation. #Thread 2/ Neither BJP Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman nor blog minister Arun Jaitley never answered anything about the following questions: When did IAF requested for 36 Rafale? To whom did IAF submit the request? Which committee held the meeting?

1/ When Modi ordered #Rafale36 off the shelf from France, Modi himself and his ministers, other BJP leaders along with Modi bhakt Media reporters kept repeating and keep repeating one sentence- “it is an emergency purchase for IAF” 2/ If it was an emergency requirement, it would have been ordered under the Fast Track Procedure of DPP. If so, when did IAF submit the proposal for 36 Rafale and did the then Chief of Air Staff approve it? When was the approval given by DAC and did Mr Parrikar know about this?

1/ No Mrs @nsitharaman. This is another false statement from you.
The first question is, who gave the permission to PM to take a unilateral decision and why didn’t he wait for a CCS approval before his announcement?
Why did the then Defence Minister was not consulted? 2/ Another question you never answered is why did Modi govt agreed on Geneva as the seat of arbitration? And why did Modi govt agreed to pay in advance before the delivery?
How did such big a deal went through without the mandatory bank guarantee from Dassault?

1/ Why Modi government’s #Rafale36 is not a transparent deal and why the cost of around ₹1670 crore per Rafale is too exorbitant a price? Why Opposition is calling it #RafaleScam?
We have clear answers available in public domain given by The then DM Parrikar. #RafaleScamThread 2/ A Ministry Of Defence press release dated 28 August 2007 states the then government’s estimated cost for the MMRCA deal with total 126 aircrafts were ₹42,000 i.e 333.33 cr per aircraft.

1) Let us revisit the 17 days starting from March 25, 2015 to April 10, 2015 to understand how the Rafale deal changed altogether. #thread 2) 25/03/3015: Eric Trappier, CEO of Dassault Aviation held a press conference at their facility in the presence of Indian Ambassador to France, senior IAF officials and HAL Chairman said they are happy to announce the strengthening of their relationship with HAL +

1/ How RSS befool the Indians by expropriating public money for its growth and maintenance? - an example.
RSS and BJP asked Maharashtra govt to declare their founder K B hedgewar’s memorial - known as Smruti Mandir - a tourist place in 2017
timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/nagpur/sa… 2/ Devendra Fadnavis govt granted the tourism status to the place in May 2018. Immediately Nagpur Municipal Corporation allocated ₹3 crore for the “Developmental Work” of Smruti Mandir and another RSS leader’s memorial

1/ Nirmala Sitharaman’s argument citing the secrecy agreement to Congress’ allegation on the exorbitant price of Rafale36 was nothing, but another deliberate attempt to mislead the people of the country to hide the wrong doings of Modi in Rafale deal. 2/ Three days after we broke the story of inaccuracies in the #Rafale36 deal of Modi govt, on 17 November 2017, DM Nirmala Sitharsman in a press conference told reporters that the govt will disclose all the details. Where was the Secrecy agreement then?

1/ When a democratically elected govt spend taxpayers’ money to mislead the taxpayers themselves by publishing manipulated and fudged data in public domain for its political mileage, it is despicable . After SBA thread, here is the PMAY #Thread 2/ Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is the new name given by this govt to the previously existed IAY, RGAY and other central govt sponsored housing schemes. Projecting PMAY as this govt’s initiative is like saying India became independent only after May 2014.

1/ When BJP says ‘Congress mukt Bharat’, we seldom take it seriously. They don’t mean Congress Mukt, but opposition free. Why so?
Let us take a look. This is very important now- especially after What BJP has done in Karnataka.#Thread 2/ Why Congress mukt Bharat? Because as of now, Congress is the only opposition party which has a national reach. Once it is crushed, spoiling regional parties will not be a huge problem for BJP / RSS in today’s scenario

1/ Since PM Narendra Modi tweeted about the electrification of all the villages, a lot of idiotic tweets like this 👇🏼popped up.
Such fools must understand, this is not Modi’s achievement; but as usual, Modi claiming the paternity of someone else’s child. 2/ Rural electrification was going on in India since long. In 2005 April, the then UPA govt launched Rajiv Gandhi Gramin Vidytikaran Yojana (RGGVY) with the aim to electrify every village in India and give free electricity connection to every BPL family

1/ How effectively BJP is fighting corruption? Here is the best example from RSS’ Ram Rajya - Uttar Pradesh.

On 14/12/17, Allahabad HC asked Adiyanath Govt to suspend the then Gorakhpur DM Rajeev Rautela on a case releted to an illegal mining scam + 2/ Adityanath didn’t care. Court asked for an inquiry report by Chief Secretary and when submitted HC trashed the report and asked for a detailed proper investigation. Still Adityanath didn’t care. Rautela continued as DM.

1/Modi, Jaitley and other BJP leaders often point out FDI inflow is highest after Modi government took over 2/ This is one of the main argument they put forth to say the economy is in good shape. Both PM and FM did that many times in recent past
