Rubbishing all allegations made by the Congress on Rafale deal, PM Narendra Modi said, “It is not an allegation against me personally, but an allegation against my government. If there is any allegation against me personally, let them dig who gave what, when and where and to whom.”

He added that the matter had been cleared by the Supreme Court and even the French President had spoken about the issue. The PM said that instead of making such allegations, there should be debate why controversies have been created over defence deals since Independence and our forces weakened.

Shri Modi said that those people who wanted to weaken the Army were levelling such allegations. “Should I worry that they are making personal attacks on me, or whether my country's needs should be met? I decided that whatever abuses are hurled at me, whatever allegations are levelled against me, I will continue on the path of honesty and give primacy to the country's security.” The PM added that he won't leave the Army jawans to their fate and whatever be their requirement, the government would expedite the procurement processes.
