Viewpoint: Is Rafale Row Merely a Political Punching Bag ?

Oct 12, 2018 08:31 AM IST India India

France's Mediapart comes out with a Rafale ‘twist’, claims tie-up with a particular private defence firm was ‘mandatory’ for Rafale contract. French publication Le Monde contradicts Mediapart’s claims. Dassault too denies Mediapart’s charge, says the company freely chose offset partner. Rahul calls Nirmala’s France visit a ‘cover-up’, she says it’s a scheduled visit. BJP says Rahul is lying, dares him to prove allegations in court.

#MeToo hits ex-editor & MoS external affairs MJ Akbar. Journalists recount horror stories of sexual harassment & molestation. As many name & shame the junior minister, clamour for his ouster grows. Akbar remains silent, but govt breaks silence. Smriti puts onus on the minister to clarify on charges. Should MJ Akbar resign immediately?
