NEW DELHI: After a wait of four years, five Rafale fighter jets land in India. Congress in its Twitter handle reminded that the then UPA government in 2012 had first initiated the talks to import Rafale jets from France.

Ahead of the Rafale landing in Ambala, Congress tweeted, “We congratulate the Indian Air Force on receiving the Rafale jets. INC govt's labour in identifying & purchasing Rafale in 2012 have finally borne fruit.”

The party also took this opportunity to point out the difference between the Rafale deal finalized by the Manmohan Singh government and the final deal that was signed by the Modi government.

“The stark difference between the Congress & BJP deal reveal the BJP's scam: The Congress Rafale purchase would have ensured India receives 126 jets instead of BJP's 36. 108 Rafale jets would have been Made in India. India would have received the Rafale jets by approx 2016. Cost of each Rafale jet would have been Rs. 526 crore”, the Congress said.
