AIR OB­JEC­TIONS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

South Block is abuzz with talk of the im­pend­ing trans­fer of Joint Sec­re­tary (Air) Ra­jeev Verma. He ap­par­ently struck a dis­cor­dant note over the price cal­cu­la­tions for the 7.8 bil­lion Euro Rafale deal. He was away for a week on study leave when the deal was signed. Ear­lier, he had ob­jected to cal­cu­la­tions on the or­ders for 106 ad­di­tional Pi­la­tus PC-7 ba­sic trainer air­craft and the deal for six Air­bus MRTT re­fu­elling tankers, eventually can­celled in July.
