Rafale deal revelations
It was surprising that The Hindu should have printed half-truths without ascertaining the full details, and given ammunition to Congress President Rahul Gandhi who has exhausted his torrent of abuse against the Prime Minister and has only been looking for additional material with which to denigrate the country’s leader (Page 1, ‘Exclusive’, “MoD protested against PMO undermining Rafale negotiations”, February 8). The ethics of journalism warrant that the comments by the then Defence Minister should have also been published. Mr. Gandhi is only misleading people with ‘shoot and scoot’ comments for his political gains. His unjustified and abusive comments against the Prime Minister will surely rebound on him and the Congress party.
