Despite the Government’s stout denial that there is any wrongdoing about the Rafale deal, the controversy refuses to die down. The Government maintains that the per-aircraft price of Rafale cannot be disclosed because it is covered by the confidentiality clause. The Congress says the price of the aircraft (without its avionics and missiles etc) is not secret. The French Government “clarification” that security issues are confidential does not clarify whether the price is considered a security issue. So the price controversy is kept alive.
