Indian Politician Says Sonia Gandhi Has Rigged M-MRCA Deal for Rafale

If the Indian M-MRCA fighter competition wasn't quite surreal enough, in comes an Indian politician-economist, notably re-energized by his current association with India's "anti-corruption" movement and India's monumental telecom scam investigation, to stir the pot some more. A known fire-bomber with an unabashed antipathy to India's ruling Congress party, Subramanian Swamy has now apparently trained his ire at the IAF's $12-billion M-MRCA fighter deal.

Swamy, officially leader of the Janata Party, but best known for years as a voluble and dogged government baiter on all matters graft, says he has written to Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh making some very dramatic allegations. The letter (full text in image above) was written on April 29, two days after the dramatic M-MRCA elimination. Like all his letters, this one says that it draws on "inside information" from within the government. Let's get to the contents:

Swamy writes: "My sources indicate that the pre-determined decision to favour the French aircraft [Dassault's Rafale] was the outcome of several conversations between the wife of French President Ms. Carla Bruni and the Chairperson of the National Advisory Council Ms. Sonia Gandhi, and surprisingly also with two foreign nationals who are the sisters of Ms. Sonia Gandhi."

It is not clear what information Swamy has based his allegations on.

At the very least, it should be said that Subramanian Swamy was once quite aptly described by a leading news weekly as "the Professor Moriarty to Sonia's Sherlock Holmes", so there shouldn't be any real surprise that the target of his letter is specifically the Congress Party president. That said, the allegations he makes are indubitably explosive. Swamy's letter refers to "credible information" in his possession, but says nothing about what this credible information is. It is not clear if he has shared any further information with the Prime Minister apart from this letter.

The operative part of his letter goes: "Based on some credible information given to me on the conversation between Ms. Carla Bruni and Ms Sonia Gandhi’s sisters, there has been an agreement of the French to pay a hefty bribe for favouring the purchase of French aircrafts."

Interestingly, a popular Indian military commentator has made a slightly backhanded allusion to pretty much the same thing today. In this column published in today's Pioneer, Maj Gen (Retd) Ashok Mehta writes, "The IAF favours the Rafale not the least because the French are promising the moon. There is also a high level back channel Italian connection, they say." So either the columnist has read Subramanian Swamy's letter, or has his own "insiders", in which case, as you've no doubt guessed, we have two prominent Indian figures saying that the Rafale has already been chosen to win the M-MRCA competition, and that it took a high-level government connection -- Swamy names Sonia Gandhi, the Maj Gen her nationality -- to work it through.

It should be reiterated that neither of these controversial assertions has been backed in substance -- at least as far as I know -- in either the letter or the column. We'll have to see where this goes.

What this nucklehead wants ??/ Even if a bribe is given that does not change the fact that Rafale is the best...

Even if a investigation is opened, i hope a simultaneous investigation should be opened on this fool also....and if he is somehow related to US companies or some other participating company, he should be charged...

I am surprised the Gandhi family hasn't taken this Subramaniam Swamy fellow to the cleaners yet for slander. I am surprised the media take his conspiracy theories seriously.

What an idiot!! If he is correct, then why did Sonia didn't support Eurofighter, after-all ITALY is part of the Eurofighter Consortium (Alenia Aeronautica, i.e. Finmeccanica).

I cannot believe that we give people like that platform to show their absurdity and stupidity!!

Latest score: Rafale 0, Americans 1.

There needs to be a clear separation of 2 statements here.

1) Statement 1 - It is a fact that the French plane is indeed formidable. It is also a fact that it is among the best choice given high potential for future upgrades, tech transfer, joint development and meeting IAF reqs. It is a true Multi-role fighter, which is what this competition was about in the first place.

2) Statement 2 - Mr Swamy's statement that there is kickbacks involved. There may be truth in this, may be not. Sounds like Bofors act2.

Conclusion - I think Shree Subramaniyan Swamy is trying to mix the above 2 statements and then go on to state that we are buying Rafale only because of kickbacks. That is not true. We are buying Rafale for the fact in statement 1, which is clearly the best choice for IAF. If this fighter comes without kickbacks, it is great, But if it comes with kickbacks then Sonya needs to be brought to justice.

Oh well the ugly games have begun. I think Livefist also predicted this. Also read the same in BR. Let the games begin. Many more exciting days ahead. Can Livefist keep a count of all the game winners and scores.

I read elsewhere that the PM has 90 days in which to take action on this letter, after which Swamy can approach the Supreme Court and ask for the appointment of a Special Investigator. If that's the case, this may not be so bad as the outcome should be known fairly quickly (1-2 years).

Anurag said...

Oh come on Mr swamy.....Whats your problem, even if their is corruption then that won't be anything new in defence,so why not just make a good deal by buying a nice fighter(Both Rafale and Typhoon are amazing and deserving).
Plus to me this is just his Anti-Sonia reflex..
I believe IAF chief was afraid of obstacles from loosing companies and not from Indians like Mr Swamy.
It would be better if he reveals his sources(which i doubt he has any).

More bullshit ! Somebody is trying VERY HARD to prevent a Rafale sale, who also happens to be the best choice.

Prasun K. Sengupta said...

Just as there is the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, so is there the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials
in International Business Transactions (http://www.oecd.org/dataoecd/59/13/40272933.pdf) to which France is a signitory. I can't think of any reason why any French public official/figure would court disaster by blatantly violating this convention. And for those following developments about the Scorpene SSK procurements by India and Malaysia, DCNS financial officials have openly stated in the law courts in France that there have been cases of financial impropriety with regard to these two procurement decisions. Therefore, if at all there is any manipulation with regard to the M-MRCA down-select, I would tend to have more faith in revelations emanating from French legal investigators rather than the likes of Subramaniam Swamy.

Anonymous said...

Subramaniam was the 1st to highlight 2g scam. Hence we can't take his recent revelations so lightly.
We need to consider few things.
China's J20 stealth fighter has changed India's defense scenario. No matter how sharp your sword is, you can never win a battle against someone armed with a gun. This analogy also applies to 4.5 Gen fighters Vs 5th Gen fighters.
By the time we will be inducting these highly expensive jets in their total strength, China will be rolling out J20s. How capable are these jets to take on a 5th Gen fighter like J20? Does it makes any sense to splurge such huge amounts of money on jets which will be rendered obsolete within 5 to 10 years of their joining the IAF in full strength?
The next question we need to ask is are the European Jets, which are almost twice the price of US or Russian jets, also having twice the capability of these jets? If that isn't the case then why are we paying such huge amounts of money for fighters which maybe marginally better than their Russian and American counterparts?
In light of the above, we need to ask ourselves what swung the decision in favor of the two most expensive jets in the competition? As they are more expensive, hence the kickbacks from such deals will also be higher. Is this the main reason why we opted for the more expensive jets considering the fact that their superiority will last only for few short years?
Last but not the least, why did Anthony warn our top brass not to be swayed by "aggressive mktg" particularly when their job was finished and the ball was in the court of MOD? This deal stinks and Madam must come clean on this allegation.

Guys before u get to any conclusion, get the facts right.. Dr Swamy has been in politics for almost 40 yes and not a single case or charge against him. Sonia ( antonia maino) can take dr swamy to court, but with despite all her resources she is mum on the issue. Dr yevgenia albats in her book state within state which she wrote after interviewing KGB had written that 2 billion dollars were given to Sonia Gandhi and family. The one time she tried to take dr swamy to court was in newyork but the judge dismissed the case as she would not turn up for cross examination. Dr swamy is also responsible for the investigation of 2 G case.
Amothe thing is that his wife is not American but a Parsi Indian and is a supreme court lawyer.
Guys do some research please before accusing anyone or people like Sonia and digvijaya will destroy the country

Mr. Ra said...

Three facts can be guessed:

1. Like Boffors gun, Rafale too must be techno-economically the best.

2. Some interested party is not able to digest the above position and wants to keep the things in abeyance for long till Gangetic plains are overrun by chinopak.

3. If not tackled properly and in right spirit, this may affect the MMRCA defense procurement causing abnormal delays in purchase and obstacles in TOT and fulfilling of the other important aspects of this contract.

If we are looking for a aircraft that will help our domestic industry and make us a self reliant, then the choice is simple. The choice is Typhoon. The French as other countries have a history of bribing our officers and politicians to get what they want. Also, take into consideration the way France was handling the Mirage upgrades and the Scorpion Sub tech transfer, they were asking for astronomical figure r/t Mirage upgrade and the tech transfer has a lot of issues that haven't been quite solved. Also, take into consideration that France was wheeling and dealing with Pakistan after we obtained the Scorpion Subs......thus aiding in an Arms race that bleeds us dry. Don;t be fools...at least with the Euro fighter, Germany and UK are the biggest shareholders and have shown a willingness to hear and take our views into consideration!

Timmy P. said...

To Prasun, every country has laws governing corruption but who follows? When a defense company that is nationalized is looking to make a deal, the rest of the world bends the rules to allow their companies greater chances at sealing a deal. Research PM Chirag and corruption, and you get the point I am making. There are no exceptions, Rafael is not a good choice when you take into consideration our needs. I was surprised how TOI pushed an article highlighting spare parts shortage with the Euro fighter. Now, let's take a moment and think, shall we? If the Typhoon won, they would definitely build spares in India to keep costs down so this issue of spares is something that is being dragged intentionally to malign the craft early on. This is a no brainer, that's why I smell something even more fishy with the deal than sushi!

When the TEC report was submitted in 2009 the Rafale aircraft was not in contention and was rejected since it was not meeting certain specs. Mysteriously it came back in contention after some hectic parleying. Now you say it is the frontrunner in the competition. This is a real fishmarket. The truth lies elsewhere. All are good aircrafts. The difference lies in the cream of the cake. That is what S Swamy is bringing out. But there is more masala in store with an expected wikileak.

There is no substance in these allegations the rafales and typhoons excelled in all phases of trials .the Aircheif PV Naik even went to the extent of saying that the IAF should be applying for a patent on the evaluation process of these six jets which were tested on 643 vital parameters.Swami creates a storm on each and every matter sometimes he is successful but more often it is just a hype.

The French didn't bribe the Pakis.
Why would they bribe Sonia of all people? As it is, every step she takes is recorded by Shri. Swamy.
Btw, wasn't Swamy responsible in brokering a deal between Sonia and Jaya. The outcome was BJP lost the floor by one vote :)
Swamy ji, if you have any credible info, make it public, or please lay off and stop behaving like a mercenary.
This has probably been one of the most transparent competition/trials. More than just heads will roll if any irregularities are found.
Swamy is acting like a hired gun willing to sabotage the deals for his Amreekan paymasters. Don't we know about his links with the CIA? Hardly surprising. He has done it in the past as well.

If there was any proof other than Swami's "sources", do you think the opposition parties and other contenders would have kept quiet??? Boeing and Lockheed Martin have accepted the verdict and moved on. People like us should also.

About the Aero-India thing-the whole "bribery scam" sounded like a B-grade Sting operation. Do you honestly think someone can bribe a wing commander with 20,000 rupees??? And that too at a public air show. Come on.

http://www.deccanherald.com/content/144344/deeper-conspiracy-aero-indias-bribe.html

A similar incident occured during South Korea's evaluation of the Rafale and Boeing's F-15K. Dassault was alleged to have bribed a ROKAF colonel; the charge was later proved to be false. The F-15K won that competition though according to some reports, the Rafale performed better in trials.

Well this dosen't make sense.
Specially saying the Italian angle in the deal, Wow! and Italy wanted to favor Rafale when Typhoon is in contention.

I have my Favors for Sawmy's views , but this ones dosen't fit, even if is against Sonia Ghandhi (irony is that second name always gets the best of emotions to support, would have been happy to see how people reacted in election if it was Sonia Rajiv and Rajiv Firoz earlier), but Italian angle Bhooo...
Moreover, we need these jets badly.

Thinking of the Typhoon lobby to make sure they are favored by this controversy??
Some time the politician need not be bribed, you just rally someone with "Insider" information.

I think Anon @ 9.24 AM is right. The Rafale was not in contention during the TEC. There were a series of articles during Jan to May 2009. Now mysteriously Rafale is the front runner. It is well known by now that the radar issue was a key one for rejection in the TEC. Anyway let us not count the chicken before they are hatched. There is something brewing up and is likely to reach the Supreme Court.

Sonia and Rahul and their family may be the most corrupt crooks in India. But at least they earn/loot their money in India. Swami is a scumbag who earns money from Harvard and then returns to sling dirt in India. He has oscillated from being centrist to extreme Hindu nationalism of the sort that would embarass Praveen Togadia.

There was a comment in your blog that Rafale was rejected in TEC. This was in your blog. "The French Rafale twin-engine multi-role fighter has been knocked off a $10-billion contract for 126 combat aircraft for the Indian Air Force. One of six contenders, Rafale was officially rejected by the Ministry of Defence for what an official called the failure to meet qualitative requirements of the contract.
a senior official of the Ministry of Defence today said that Dassault Aviation's Rafale was rejected at the technical evaluation stage for failing to meet minimum performance requirements detailed in the tender document. Flight trials for the remaining five fighters are expected to commence within three months,"
Then how Rafale is the front runner now.

Subramanium Swamy is the perpetual eccentric and irrational crackpot! He only knows how to raise dust in the air that any jackal can do. Verily, he was kicked out as a professor of IIT Delhi way back in the early 1970s because of his irresponsible behavior. It is a surprise he ever made it higher, but in the cauldron of Indian politics he made it to cabinet minister in Morarji Desai's cabinet, but definitely thru underhanded means and back channels. Talk of the back channel deals of Swamy and you will be astonished! In fact, the way he sold India to the Chinese in early 1980s, just because he spoke Chinese, is nothing except that becoming of a traitor. All guns should actually point at him!

Raven said...

Is it wise to rule out F/A-18 all together? After all this is an aircraft with mature weapon systems including anti-radiation missiles and AESA radar. Down side is of course the fact that the Yanks are never going to part with the source-codes, and hence we will have a multi-million dollar toy that can only dance to American tunes.
Can someone with actual experience and insight make a comparative study between the level of maturity and future of EF-2000 and Rafale programs?

Anonymous said...

Raven,

The Super Hornet is an excellent STRIKE aircraft which was designed for a very specific US Navy requirement. So it has advantages and disadvantages associated with such a requirement. It's slower than most of its competitors including the vanilla F-18 hornet, it's turn rates are not great and it weighs little less than an SU-30.

In other words, its air to air capability is suspect when facing an enemy with equivalent systems. There's a reason why Boeing offered India a variant of the Super Hornet with a brand new engine which has not served anywhere. It shows the drawbacks of the type more than anything. You can improve the strike capabilities of the pure fighter (F-15,SU-27,Mirage-III, Mig-23) but you can't do much to improve the air to air performance of a strike aircraft.

The Eurofighter and Rafale are both on more or less the same plane as far progress goes. The Rafale is the more mature platform as far as multirole strike capabilities go (better low level performance, five heavy weapon/fuel stations) though the Eurofighter is the better fighter. The Eurofighter can survive without the Indian contract, the Rafale less so. So that will play out on how we evaluate technology transfer and workshare plans.

Why buy US aircraft and make that country richer? Has America ever been a good friend of India? Has it ever seriously looked at India as a real friend? No, I don't think so. The Rafael aircraft after all, is the best of the lot.

Now that the Rafale is selected, there will start a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) by Swamy. This may not change Rafale selection, but if it is a fact she has indeed got Money, then Swamy can actually use this to send her to Jail, especially given the Supreme Court Verdict on 31.01.2012 where if there is no sanction against the RAFALE Case , in 3 months the prosecuting agency has to start Enquiry through the Courts.

That will be some fun , because he alleges in the letter to bring in Defense Minister AK Antony and Prime Minister ManMohan Singh.

4. The air force should start flying kites from now on. I am eagerly awaiting the scam on Manjha purchases .

5. Bofors should have never been used in Kargil as the gun had integrity issues. India should apologise and compensate the Pakis.Henceforth all Indian artillery shall be secular and kill only the majority . CAG will scrutiny all firings from now on.

6. Our VIP's need more helicopters. No Swamy scam andalon on this, surprisingly.

one Eurofighter would be lost for every 4.5 Su-35 fighters shot down. This compares extremely favourably to the other aircraft (see also the BVR Combat Rating table); F-16C Falcon (0.3:1), F-15C Eagle (0.8:1), F-18C Hornet (0.3:1), F-18+ (0.4:1, NB this is not the current F-18E/F which is apparently a downgraded version of the F-18+ used in the studies) and Dassault Rafale (1:1). Only the LM/Boeing F-22 Raptor bettered the Eurofighter's performance with a combat exchange ratio of 10.1:1.
