Defense Minister Lied to HAL In Parliament, Documents Should Be Shown Or Resigned: Rahul Gandhi

Mumbai :  Taking a dig on Defence Minister Nirmala Sitaraman’s speech, Congress President Rahul Gandhi alleged her for saying lie “in parliament that HAL was given government order of one lakh crores, while demanding that he should either document or resign in support of his statement in the house.

Gandhi’s attack came after a media report claimed that “not a single rupee of the said Rs 1 lakh crore has come to HAL, since not a single order, as claimed, has been signed till now.”

The Congress, while targeting the government, alleged that it has denied Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) an offset contract under the Rafael Fighter Jet deal with France, the government has denied.

Whereas ruling party- led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government acccused Rahul Gandhi parties for not supporting HAL during its rule and said that the government is now strengthening the defense public sector undertaking.

“When you tell one lie, you need to keep spinning out more lies, to cover up the first one. In her eagerness to defend the PM’s Rafale lie, the RM lied to Parliament,” Gandhi tweeted

“Tomorrow, RM must place before Parliament documents showing 1 Lakh crore of Govt orders to HAL. Or resign,” he said

Congress’s chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala tweeted on Sunday: “The Lying Defence Minister’s Lies Get Exposed! Defence Minister claimed that procurement orders worth Rs 1 Lakh Crore provided to HAL! HAL says Not a SINGLE PAISA has come, as Not a SINGLE ORDER has been signed!”

“For the first time, HAL forced to take a loan of ? 1000 Cr to pay salaries!,” he added.
