In what marks a new low in the public discourse, Senior Congress leader and former Karnataka Chief Minister, M Veerappa Moily, has accused Indian Air Force chief B S Dhanoa of “lying” a day after the latter called the Rafale deal a “game changer” and the Supreme Court verdict on it a “very fine” judgement, reports India Today.

Moily, a long term loyalist of Nehru-Gandhi, claimed that the IAF chief along with the head of Dassault Aviation, the manufacturers of Rafale fighter jets, had visited public sector HAL’s Bengaluru headquarters days before the Paris agreement and found it a “competent body with necessary expertise”.

Moily also demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi apologise for having sacrificed the security of the nation by entering into the deal.

Air Chief Marshal B S Dhanoa on Wednesday (19 December) called Rafale a game changer and said that the Supreme Court has given a “fine judgement” on petitions against the deal with France on the military aircraft.

Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa welcomed the Supreme Court verdicton Rafale jet deal and said the Indian Air Force needs the fighter aircraft badly. “Who says we don’t need Rafale? The govt says we need Rafale, we are saying we need Rafale, the SC has given a fine judgment, it took us so long that our adversaries have already upgraded their system Rafale is a game changer

Responding to Verappa Moily’s remarks, BJP Spokesperson took to Twitter, asking whether Congress was the only purveyor of truth.


On 14 December, a three-judge bench of the Supreme court dismissed a petition to probe the Rafale deal. The SC also reversed orders on the petitions accusing corruption and procedural irregularities involved in the procurement of 36 jets from Dassault Aviation.
