The Congress Friday raked up the issue of Rafale jet deal, accusing the government of compromising national security and paying more for the combat aircraft. Addressing a press conference here, senior party leader P Chidambaram alleged that the government has wronged the country in two ways – it compromised national security and paid Rs 186 crore more per plane. There is no doubt any longer that Rafale aircraft deal deserves to be examined thoroughly by a joint parliamentary committee.
