N Ram’s Report Exposes Lies of PM & His Minions on Rafale: Shourie
Speaking about senior journalist N Ram’s report in The Hindu, which revealed that the Prime Minister’s Office held “parallel negotiation” with the French team in the Rafale deal, former BJP leader Arun Shourie heartily congratulated Ram for uncovering what he called a ‘decisive fact.’
Shourie said it also highlighted the superficiality of the Supreme Court’s judgment on the Rafale deal.
“Once again, it’s a warning to the SC about the dangers of deciding matters on the basis of information received in sealed cover and of deciding matters without going into the facts and circumstances in details,” he added.
Speaking to The Quint, Shourie added that this is what allowed the Attorney General to go on interrupting others by saying that the documents being put on record were “purloined documents.”
With reference to the anti-corruption provisions being dropped, Shourie said that this was done as they were laying the groundwork in anticipation of any inquiry into Anil Ambani and his company and the favours that were done, despite his company not being qualified to be offset partners.
“This government consists of bullies, who have muscles but no brains. They have muscles in their brain. They will keep making mistakes and new facts will keep coming out”, he said.
