Mumbai: BJP ally Shiv Sena Wednesday supported the Opposition’s demand in the Lok Sabha for a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) probe into the Rafale issue, and drew a parallel with the alleged Bofors scam, claiming that people were saying that the Rafale aircraft were good but the deal was bad.

Participating in the discussion over the Rafale deal, Sena leader and south Mumbai MP Arvind Sawant said that the government, which always spoke of transparency, was rejecting the demand for a JPC probe. “The former CMD of HAL says we can manufacture Rafale in India. When the company has got the capacity to do it efficiently in India, why is HAL deprived of the contract. That is not a correct move by the government,” he said.

 

The Sena MP told this newspaper, “It is a good opportunity to set up a JCP to make things crystal clear.” The Sena has been attacking the Modi-led government over a host of issues, including the Rafale controversy.
