‘Lies of ‘Mahajhootbandhan’ stand exposed by CAG report’: Arun Jaitley
New Delhi, Feb 13: After the CAG report on Rafale deal was tabled in Rajya Sabha today, Union minister Arun Jaitley took a dig at the Congress and Opposition, saying "Satyameva Jayate - the truth shall prevail". He added that the report reaffirms the dictum.
"Lies of 'Mahajhootbandhan' stand exposed by CAG report", said Arun Jaitley in a series of tweets.
"Satyameva Jayate" - the truth shall prevail. The CAG Report on Rafale reaffirms the dictum, read his tweet.
The Rafale fighter jet deal signed in 2016 was 2.86 per cent cheaper than the UPA's deal in 2007, revealed Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) in its report tabled in Rajya Sabha today.
Earlier in the day, the much-awaited CAG report on the Rafale defence deal was tabled in the Upper House, even as Congress president Rahul Gandhi and other leaders protest outside Parliament.
The protesters could be seen throwing paper planes with pictures of PM Modi. Former PM Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi were also present.
