Rafale Deal: AAP demands parliamentary probe in Rafale deal

Hours after the Supreme Court dismissed petitions seeking a court-monitored probe into the purchase of 36 Rafale jet fighters, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Friday demanded a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to probe the deal and a detailed discussion in parliament, according to news agency IANS.

Senior AAP leader and MP Sanjay Singh said the court had refused clearly to interfere in many of the matters related to the deal, including the question of pricing and choice of offset Indian partner, according to IANS.

"A JPC should be formed for a detailed probe in the deal as to how the per jet cost reached Rs 1,670 crore from the earlier Rs 540 crore and why they (BJP) preferred a private firm over a government firm," MR Singh told media, quoted by IANS.

Mr Singh added: "If the BJP thinks the court has given a clean chit to it, then it should not be afraid of the JPC."
