On why only 36, Congress could not buy even one and said there was no money. So how can BJP buy 126 in one go? Here are screen shots of AK Anthony and Chidambaram saying there is no money to buy them both in 2013 and 2014.Zynda wrote: ↑Sat Mar 09, 2019 5:50 pmOK folks. It seems like Karnataka wing of IYC, the youth arm of INC is doing door-door campaign in Karnataka about NaMo's failure. I think they are scheduled to be some where near my house in the next two weeks. I think some of their documents contain following content wrt Rafale scam, recent events with TSP (highlighting UPA's decision on upgrading IAF fighters) etc. I am pasting some info here. Would appreciate if folks could come up with points on countering the sameSome of them are obvious like cheaper rate per jet (for people like follow defence news closely) but it would be nice if we could come up with bullet points rebuttal on some of the more complex issues (like 36 Rafale jets instead of 126) etc.Congress deal was to get
- 126 Rafales (what IAF wants)
- Made in India by HAL
- Cheaper rate per jet
Modi cancelled that in 2016 for
- 36 Rafales only
- Made with Ambani
- Costlier rate per jet
Who bought & upgraded the Mirage 2000?
Who bought & upgraded the MiG-29?
Who bought the Su-30?
Who upgraded the MiG-21, enabling it to shoot down an F-16?
Who turned down a French offer for the Mirage 2000 assembly line?
On other purchases, it was their duty as incumbent govt to buy them. Why did the squadron strength decrease to below 40 against a requirement of above 50 if they were buying all those planes? They bought very few planes during a long period of rule. Why did we even have to upgrade Mig 21, a 60 year old plane, instead of buying newer ones?
As per cheaper rate, Qatar and Egypt bought Rafales and the same or higher price than India. Are the french Rahul Gandhi's sasural that they are going to give them cheaper?
