France, BJP refute Rahul Gandhi's Rafale 'lies'

On Friday, Congress president Rahul Gandhi accused the NDA government of being dishonest on the Rafale deal with France.  He claimed to have met French President to discuss the secrecy clause in the Rafale fighters deal in the past.  

Hours later, France said that there is no truth in Rahul's claims.  It spoke of the provisions of the Rafale agreement that are applicable to the Inter-Governmental Agreement on 36 Rafale aircraft of September 2016 too.

The BJP too has refuted Rahul's words in the Parliament.  "Rahul Gandhi is lying on Rafale deal. Here is what French President Emmanuel Macron had to say on the deal -  "Obviously you have competitors and we can't let them know details of the deal. In India and in France, when the deal is very sensitive, we can't reveal details."," the saffron party today noted.
