Rahul Gandhi's allegations rejected by Reliance Defence
The Congress chief on Tuesday had accused PM Modi of ‘Treason and breaking the Official Secrets Act’.
Rahul had said, “By leaking information on the Rafale MoU in advance to Anil Ambani, the PM has broken the Official Secrets Act and compromised National Security, opening himself up to criminal prosecution.”
However, Reliance Defence in reaction to it said that the "proposed MoU" mentioned in the email cited by Congress President Rahul Gandhi was a reference to its cooperation with Airbus Helicopter. It further mentioned that it had no connection with the fighter jet contract.
The Reliance Defence spokesperson said, "The discussion on proposed MoU was clearly with reference to cooperation between Airbus Helicopter and Reliance. It had no connection whatsoever with Government to Government Agreement between France and India for 36 Rafale aircraft".
