Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Thursday said she cannot reveal the price of the Rafale fighter jets in the interest of national security. Sitharaman’s remark comes after Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s asked the government to reveal the amount, alleging irregularities in the deal for 36 fighter jets from France.

“Rahul Gandhi is searching for ammunition against the government but hasn’t found anything… So he’s fishing,” Sitharaman said at the India Economic Conclave here organised by Times Network.
