India's Air Force is all ready to get a set of new blazing wings as it readies to seal the Rafale deal with France.
After Modi's insistence, France agreed to lower the price by around Rs 28,000 crs, that it is 30% less than the earlier price dealt. A triumphant BJP has questioned the Congress over UPA's dealings and whether the high-priced deal agreed earlier was short-changing the country.
Once the deal comes through, the fighter jet will be delivered from 2019 onwards.
