Muzaffarnagar, Oct 15: Disgruntled BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha criticised the BJP government at the Centre over the Rafale deal. He said a French publication had quoted former French president Francois Hollande as saying that the Indian government had proposed Reliance Defence as a partner for the French aerospace major Dassault Aviation for the deal.
