Negotiation panel asked to expedite report on Rafale deal: Parrikar

Negotiation panel asked to expedite report on Rafale deal: Parrikar
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday said he has asked the Contract Negotiation Committee (CNC) to submit by last week of February or early March a detailed report on the multi-billion-dollar deal to buy Rafale fighter jets from Dassault Aviation of France.

“I have asked for the report and I have not received it and I would not like to comment until the CNC gives me a detailed report on whatever they have agreed,” he told reporters on the sidelines of the Aero India 2015 air show here.

Parrikar said there is no “premature indication” to CNC, but he had ensured that it expedites the process of submitting the report by last week of February or first week of March. “There is no premature indication to CNC. Let them complete their process. I can only assure you that I have told them to do it faster. I will ensure that they put it to me faster - at least in last week of February or first week of March,” Parrikar added. The Defence Minister also said “since it is a deal under processing, I am not commenting more on it because anything which I say will prejudice the body which is dealing with it.”
