Rafale deal protected both security & commercial interest of country: Jaitley

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said Rafale deal has protected both the security and commercial interest of India.

Briefing media in New Delhi, Mr Jaitley said it protected country’s security interest as it increases combat ability of the country.

He said the Rafale deal protected commercial interest since the final price was significantly lower both for aircraft and weaponised aircraft than what was negotiated in 2007 and 2012 under the UPA government.

Mr Jaitley further said a lot of fiction was spread about the deal but falsehood has a very short life and the disruptors have lost on all counts.
