Hyderabad, Sept.22 (Maxim News): The CPI National General Secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy today demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should quit from his top post over former French President François Hollande remark that the Indian government proposed Anil Ambani-led Reliance Defence as the service provider.
In a statement here, he alleged that the defence ministry is still shamelessly trying for a cover up saying that Hollande’s statement was being verified. Both Mr Modi and Ms Nirmala must accept moral responsibility, order a parliamentary probe and quit their official position in the Union Cabinet to save the country’s image domestically and internationally, he sought.
He said that with full contempt that the Prime Minister was directly involved in advising the French government to accept Anil Ambani-led Reliance Defence as the service provider to Dassault Aviation in the Rs 59,000-crore deal for 36 Rafale fighters. Former French President François Hollande comments, in an interview to a Paris-based investigative news website called Mediapart on September 21, 2018, contradict the PM’s, Union Defence Minister’s and finally of NDA government’s stand that it had nothing to do with the selection of offsets partners for Dassault after the deal was inked in September 2016.
The Party also urges upon the Chief Justice of India to suo mottu order Supreme Court monitored probe into the entire deal. President of India also should make use of its good offices to ensure that necessary probes are done so that the real culprits are found out at the earliest and debarred from contesting elections.(Maxim News)
