Today, the Supreme Court is going to decide whether it would re-open the case which is related to the acquisition of the 36 Rafale fighter jets by the Centre. However, the challenge raised earlier and this time the December verdict has been seeking a review by the opposition. The court stated that there was “no occasion to doubt the decision-making process” of the government to obtain the Rafale fighter jets in the middle of Congress allegations of corruption in the 2016 jet deal.
A petition was filed by former union ministers Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie, Sanjay Singh the MP of AAP and advocate Prashant Bhushan alleging that the government has “misled” the Supreme Court and has demanded a reconsideration of the judgment. It depends on a “non-existent” CAG report to verify the Rafale deal.
After the December verdict, a fourth petition was filed by the Centre which demands a review of the verdict where it says the Comptroller and Auditor General report on the Rafale deal was placed before parliament.
On February 13, the session came to an end and the report was placed before the parliament after the verdict.
The decision will be taken by the Chief Justice and Justices Sanjay Kishan and KM Joseph that whether petitioners deserve to be heard in the open court.
Earlier petitions alleged that the government had gone for an overpriced deal to help Anil Ambani’s rookie defense firm bag an offset contract with jet-maker Dassault after which the December verdict raised.
Chief Justice Gogoi said, “Having heard the matter in detail, we find no reason for any intervention by this court on the sensitive issue… Perception of individuals cannot be the basis of a fishing and roving inquiry by this court, especially in such matters.”
