Rafale will be game-changer, says Air Force chief BS Dhanoa

Rafale fighter jet is a good aircraft for India to buy and it will be a “game-changer in the subcontinent”, said Indian Air Force Chief. “We have got a good package, got a number of advantages in Rafale deal,” BS Dhanoa was quoted by news agency PTI as saying in the National Capital.

The Congress party has alleged that there was corruption in the deal and the National Democratic Alliance government chose Anil Ambani’s Reliance Group over state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for an offset deal in the $8.7-billion purchase of the jet initiated in 2016. Aviation, Rafale’s manufacturer, selected the offset partner and the government and Indian Air Force had no role, Dhanoa told reporters.
