Rafale deal: SC rejected all review petitions

The Supreme Court on Thursday  rejected a batch of review petitions seeking a court-monitored probe into the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets, saying the pleas were without merit. A three-judge bench also rejected the contention that there was a need for registration of FIR in connection with the deal.The pleas had sought re-examination of Apex Court's  14th December 2018 verdict which said there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process.A batch of petitions, including those filed by former Union ministers Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie, and lawyer Prashant Bhushan had sought a review, alleging that material facts were suppressed and a criminal investigation should be filed in the case. Centre has welcomed the Supreme Court decision. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh welcomed the dismissal of the review petitions in the Rafale case.   Singh said the NDA Government stands vindicated with this pronouncement.The Defence Minister said the issues pertaining to defence preparedness and national security should never be politicised. He said, the allegation of corruption in Rafale deal was nothing but an attempt to malign the clean and honest image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and NDA government. Home Minister and BJP president Amit Shah has said that the Court ruling proved that disruption of Parliament over Rafale was a “sham”. He said the time could have been better utilised for the welfare of people. Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, Mr Gandhi deliberately misquoted Supreme Court and attributed 'chowkidar' remark to the apex court. Meanwhile, Congress said the Supreme Court has opened the way for a comprehensive criminal investigation in the Rafale case.  party Spokesman Randeep Surjewala said, BJP is celebrating the case without analyzing it. He said, the Supreme Court has clearly said their hands can be tied due to the limitations and rights of the constitution, but the hands of an investigation conducted by an impartial agency are not tied and that can happen.
