The most controversial issue would be heard under a fresh petition in the Supreme Court of India.
The apex court will hear the fresh petition filed by lawyer Vineet Dhanda against the Rafale deal between India and France on Wednesday.
A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph shared about the new date on Monday. They shared that the fresh petition filed demands the centre to share the details of the deal and the comparative prices during the UPA and NDA rule in a sealed cover and even the information about the contract given to Reliance by Dassault.
The court will also come across the advocate M L Sharma’s plea, filed earlier which also challenged transparency in the fighter jet deal with France and demands to put stay on it, on October 10.
Mr Shara claimed the involvement of corruption in the inter-government agreement to buy 36 Rafale fighter jets and called it an “outcome of corruption”. He demanded to get the deal cancelled and not approved by Parliament under Article 253 of the constitution.
A similar petition was filed in the top court in March this year seeking an independent probe into the Rafale deal and disclosure of the cost involved in the deal before Parliament.
Rafale deal, a defence deal which has been more in talks for controversies instead of the quality and technology.
Congress has been accusing the government of the graft in the deal and has been asking for the details at the cost of the national security.
Rafale deal is a defence agreement inked for the purchase of 36 Rafale fighter aircraft in a fly-away condition between the governments of India and France.
Rafale fighter is a Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft which have two engines, manufactured by French aerospace company Dassault Aviation.
Though Defence Minister, Airforce delegates and many other people shared that no corruption was involved in the deal and it was cheaper than the deal signed during UPA government, still Congress claims for the graft with no proper evidence.
