CPI National Executive Committee member Aziz pasha on Wednesday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is keen to bring IAS and IPS officials from Gujarat to the Central government posts.
He said when almost 95 per cent of the agreement to buy Rafael Aircraft from France was completed during the UPA government itself, Modi cancelled and entered into a new agreement. To ensure that Reliance Group Chairman Anil Ambani is benefited, he exempted the public sector institution and included Ambani’s institution in the agreement.
The aircraft is to be purchased for Rs 1,640 crore. However, the Parliament was informed that it is to be purchased for Rs 740 crore, he said, adding that the BJP is giving a wrong information to the Parliament itself.
Pasha said to write off Rs 9.6 lakh crore as bad debt, Raghuram Rajan was removed from the post of RBI governor. He said the ONGC was functioning in profit till 2015. Its shares were handed over to the private parties and made it run in loss, he charged. Alleging that a dual government is functioning in Puducherry, Pasha said that the officials are confused to follow the directions of the Lt Governor or the Chief Minister. Bedi is functioning as an agent of Modi, he charged.
