Hearing against Rafale deal plea on October 10


The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a fresh PIL against the Rafale deal between India and France on October 10, 2018.

The PIL seeks a direction to the Centre to reveal details of the deal and comparative prices during the UPA and NDA rule to the apex court in a sealed cover.

A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph would hear the PIL filed by lawyer Vineet Dhanda.

The apex court on October 10 will also be hearing the earlier PIL filed by advocate M L Sharma seeking a stay on the Rafale fighter jet deal between India and France.

Advocate Sharma claimed in his plea that the inter-government agreement to buy 36 Rafale fighter jets must be quashed as it was an “outcome of corruption” and not ratified by Parliament under Article 253 of the Constitution.
